I remember watching tv commercials for Perdue chicken during the couple of years I lived outside Baltimore. They were funny and we cooked a lot of it on the grill. Now they’ve got a new spokesperson.
Since so many companies (and farmers) depend on consumer food habits and choices the information contained in the latest NPD Group’s, 20th Annual Eating Patterns in America report should be a must read. There’s some very interesting information in it. Some of it what you would expect and some of it surprising.
Biotechnology get a lot of press, both good and bad. That’s why it’s nice to see research that focuses on realities. Thanks to a heads up from Monsanto, I found out about a new report just out today called, “GM crops: the global socio-economic and environmental impact – the first nine years 1996-2004.” Many of you are involved in marketing biotech products so you might want to see the report. There’s a lot of information in it.
I can’t remember seeing so many company announcements so fast and furious as the last few weeks. Must be something in the air this fall. This announcement just came out today.
There are a whole lot of announcements coming out on new products. Maybe it’s just that time of year but there’s more than I can remember in quite some time. Take the latest from BASF. They just received registration for Regent TS, a corn seed treatment for key pests.
