Friday’s Food for Thought – Feb. 24

Every week, I read tons of news, primarily related to food, health, wellness and sustainability. On any given day, you’ll find me sharing links to relevant news stories and recipes on Twitter and sometimes on Green Your Plate’s Facebook page.

Here are some of the items that caught my eye in the Internet sphere over the past week:

  • The most talked-about topic this week is the continued ripple effect from Chipotle’s “Back to the Start” commercial which aired during the Grammy Awards earlier this month. Since that broadcast, numerous farm bureaus have issued op-ed pieces and press releases (most notably in the NY Times) denouncing the ad; the day after the ad aired, McDonald’s announced it would require its pork suppliers to phase out gestation stalls (aka sow crates); and soon after that, Bon Appetit Management Company announced their own comprehensive animal welfare policy including a similar phase-out. What’s the deal with sow crates?  Marion Nestle provides context.

Other intriguing items:

Happy weekend!
