These are challenging times to be producing food. Due to the shutdown, many food manufacturers are either overwhelmed with orders or are needing to discard their crops. Even before these difficulties, producing food has always been an opportunity to either make decisions based on integrity or cut corners and make the cheapest food to make the most profit.
In this interview with Marise May of Cha’s Organics, we discuss those decisions and how their Coconut Whipping Cream has become the newest Moms Across America Gold Standard 5-Star product. Marise shares some of the types of corner-cutting decisions some coconut milk manufacturers make and why Cha’s Organics makes the choices to do differently. If you have lost faith in food manufacturers, watch this interview. There are still good people in the food industry doing great things!
