Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
How Walmart Threatens Organic Food
In These Times - 6/23/2014.
By Arun Gupta - When Walmart announced in April that it was introducing the Wild Oats brand of organic food products in 2,000 stores, some food-justice advocates grew excited. In U.S. News & World Report, one writer praised Walmart for embracing “sustainable products and sustainable sourcing.” The Guardian declared that Walmart was providing low-income shoppers with “an organic option they can afford.” Others fear Walmart’s history spells trouble for organics.
