This week we’re highlighting a unique produce score system from Whole Foods, a way to kickflip your sushi and The Great Pumpkin of 2014. Check out this week’s News Tapa about Expo Milano 2014 and the Food Truck Nation.
There’s a new report card at Whole Foods. Whole Food developed a unique rating system that gives customers information about the source of the food. For example the score care will include the type of pesticides and water use, waste management and even how farm workers were treated. “This is the latest example of our commitment to transparency and sustainable agriculture.” – Matt Rogers, Whole Foods standards and sourcing.
