McDonalds To Close 700 Locations After Major Profit Losses
Amid falling sales and continued financial worries, McDonald’s will be closing a record 700 stores. The news comes just as states like Vermont push forward with major GMO labeling initiatives that would likely brand many of McDonald’s’ ‘balanced’ meal options as full of genetically modified ingredients.
The question now is this: Will we finally be able to oust our monopolizing food corporations who refuse to remove many dangerous ingredients from their food?
As The Washington Times reports:
After decades of aggressive expansion, the chain, now with 35,000 outlets worldwide, has been retrenching in recent years. Even before the turnaround plan was unveiled, the company said it would double the number of store closures this year to around 700.
Meanwhile, we see sales figures for organic crops absolutely skyrocketing across the board — to the point where farmers are being forced to import organic crops from international vendors in order to meet the demand. As Christina Sarich reported for Natural Society:
“Over 20,000 stores now offer organic food products. A report has shown that in 2012, more than $28.4 million was spent on healthful organic food, and that number has grown since the report published such findings. According to Nutrition Business Journal, organic food sales will reach a startling $35 billion this year. For those of us who don’t take our health for granted, this is just the beginning of a food revolution.”
Change is coming - and we can't wait. The organic revolution is here!
