Choosing an Ethical Business to Support

Packaged and processed meat is a very lucrative business as there are millions of meat lovers around the world. On a daily basis, we consume thousands of pounds of meat and this includes the processed types like hotdogs, bacon, and the like. Ideally, our love for processed food should also come with an awareness of how these food items are being produced.

There are different brand names that are competing in the arena of processed meat and not all of these manufacturers can say they are doing a job well done. As consumers, we should only advocate those businesses that are slaughtering the pigs and cows in a more humane way possible. We shouldn't just base our judgment on the taste of the meat we are eating, but also on how these products are being processed.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_industry

The first thing that most consumers would think of when buying meat is if the animal was organically raised. While this may be good, it is also best to consider how these companies processed their products. Some of these companies are very shady when it comes to the way they are handling their products. They do not disclose their processes and they also do not offer the public an opportunity to take a look at their facilities.

Always go for companies that are very transparent in their dealings. These are the businesses that are never scared to give the media and the public access to their facility. Because they are doing a great job and they are treating the animals right, they are not hesitant to have anyone take a look at their production site and take videos of their facility.

It would also be best if the company is actively giving back to the community and is not only thinking about the profit they are going to make. These businesses do not just provide job opportunities to the community, they are also giving back in the form of donations and other programs. Advocating these businesses would also mean that you are supporting the communities they are helping. Read about Smithfield Foods China

As consumers, we should be smart in choosing the right company to support. This is especially true when it comes to choosing the food brands that we advocate. By being mindful of the products we are buying, we are not only supporting businesses that are honest to goodness in their operations, we are also helping save the environment one purchase at a time.
