    Default Processed Food Manager: ‘Our Biggest Fear is the Health Activists’

    Anthony Gucciardi
    January 28th, 2013

    What keeps processed food producers up at night? Dreaded health activists like you and me, with our pesky knack for exposing the GMO-containing processed junk that mega corporations have pushed on the public. It may come as no surprise to you, but in an open interview of sorts on the massive community website Reddit, one anonymous processed food manufacturing manager explained how the biggest fear of the industry is health activists.

    In a response to a question posed by a user regarding new regulations on processed foods, the anonymous manager explained how an increasing effort by consumers to know what’s in their food is the #1 fear of the industry. While the question has to do with calorie contents on the packaging, which is drastically less significant than labeling items like GMO labeling (or imagine labeling products that contain HFCS), it touches on the subject at large. If the mere act of labeling calories and some other minor factors troubles the processed food industry, imagine what GMO labeling means for their CEOs.

    Manufacturers will do whatever necessary to stay in business. As healthier food activists close in on their products, some of their actions include: 1. changing the name of the unhealthy ingredient; 2. labeling the product "All Natural," which confuses the public because they don't understand "natural" does not mean "organic"; and 3. put just enough organic ingredients in the product to be able to call it organic, when, in fact, the product is not all organic; etc. etc. Caveat emptor..."let the buyer beware."

    That's useful information, Wiz! It's so tempting to assume that they will simply cave to our demands.... and so naive!
