We’re constantly sharing content via our Twitter feed, some really interesting stories and trends we’re finding. In case you’re not on Twitter, here’s some of the best articles we found:
- Restaurants trend report indicates almost half (45%) of respondents consider themselves “meat lovers” and that the average US diner eats 250 restaurant meals per year.
- TIME Magazine article about a fascinating culinary search for the best steak that leads the author to Spain. (Naturally, yours truly wonders if she ever made it to New Mexico to find the best steak.)
- Bill Niman discusses confusion in the marketplace due to array of often misleading labels, like “organic” and “humane” and “natural”.
- The Atlantic explores how the locavore movement has pushed for deregulation of animal slaughter. The trend might bring more local, small scale production of food (at residences even) but will surely lead to inhumane treatment.
- Cooking Up A Story showcases women who are changing the way we eat.
- New documentary American Meat could be the much-needed balanced dialogue about food issues. (We got on our soap box and gave a little skewering, no pun intended, to the decidedly imbalanced Food, Inc.)
- Fast Company highlights a project called Freshlist, a text message–based marketplace that connects sellers and buyers of local produce to insure that none of the supply goes to waste.
