Land Line
An expansion of an existing California emissions regulation has left a bitter taste among many who work with the state's produce industry. Beginning January, enforcement officers employed by the California Air Resources Board have the power to investigate and fine shippers and receivers suspected of hiring companies whose reefers don't meet California's Transportation Refrigeration Unit regulation.

Consumers want GMO food labels? The marketplace is listening
Los Angeles Times
It's a victory for the consumers who worry about genetically engineered foods that Whole Foods will label all such foods in its markets. But in truth, this also is a victory for the forces that opposed Proposition 37 because it shows this matter doesn't require weighty regulations; it easily is handled by the free market.

Major grocer to label foods with gene-modified content
The New York Times
Whole Foods Market is the first retailer in the United States to require labeling of all genetically modified foods sold in its stores — a move that some experts said could radically alter the food industry. President of Whole Foods A. C. Gallo said the new labeling requirement, which is to be in place within five years, came in response to consumer demand. "We've seen how our customers have responded to the products we do have labeled," Gallo said. "Some of our manufacturers say they've seen a 15 percent increase in sales of products they have labeled."

A mega trend in the natural food ingredients market
Natural Products Insider
"Natural," "clean label," "green," "eco-friendly" and "sustainability" are the new buzzwords in today's food and beverage industry. Products and ingredients bearing these tags have created demand among consumers, and therefore have been significant purchase influencers. The markets for these natural and naturally derived products are growing at a fast rate, creating an immense profit potential for food and beverage manufacturers. However, the industry also confronts certain challenges in coping with the demand of natural ingredients used in food and beverage applications, particularly in terms of sustainability.

Food production: Next big CSR issue
Sustainable Business Forum
It's been since early February that we read about the horse meat scandal in Europe. Today we learn that the scope of this issue is by no means only linked to some obscure Romanian supplier. High-street brands such as Nestlé and Birds Eye are now implicated, and there's little hope that this will die down any time soon.

What's next for GMO labeling?
Food Processing
The year 2012 saw a growing chorus by activists, backed by the organic food industry, to mandate labeling of foods made with genetically modified organisms. One might think the energy behind by this movement fizzled last November when California voters rejected Proposition 37 by a margin of 52 to 48 percent. This defeat, however, has done little to slow down anti-GMO activists and the resulting pressures faced by food companies.

Easier to do taxes than to eat healthy?
Duke Today
Slightly more than half of Americans believe it's easier to do taxes than learn how to eat healthy, according to a recent survey by the International Food Information Council. Most say the stream of often contradictory advice about carbohydrates, fats, calories and nutrition makes it tough to know what — and how much — to eat.

10 steps to transforming the supply chain
SupplyChainBrain
There is an unfortunate belief among some that supply chain strategy in general, and network design in particular, should be revisited only periodically, say once every five years or so. Nothing could be further from the truth — or potentially more damaging to the firm. Contemporary supply chains exist in an environment so dynamic that leading-edge firms use supply chain design tools on a continuous basis and revisit major strategic questions at least annually.
