I may or may not be exaggerating with my title. We simply don't have the whole story but those who know about Agenda 21 and the CODEX can see the
Agenda 21 short version explination
- Full version
- No CODEX Genocide
Many of you know I am a strong opponent of GMO foods or foods that are modified by Genetically Modified Organisms. I am for Proposition 37 in
California that will start the ball rolling on getting GMO's labeled on our food products. To this end I had an idea to help fight these GMO foods.
In short, First get the labels on the foods. Then call for grocery stores to separate the GMO foods from the Non GMO foods. Then super educate the
public of the dangers of GMO foods. Watch the GMO isles at the grocery stores get smaller and smaller because the stores stop selling products they
aren't making money on. GMO's will die if this is indeed what the public wants. This idea sounded great to most people I have shared it with.
That thread is here: How to Stop Monsanto and GMO Foods for Good !
forming an organization and website for this effort called Consumer GMO Choice.
However, I just found out the powers that be, namely Monsanto and it's GMO producing cronies have an Ace in the hole. It's called Slotting Fees.
Slotting Fees are fees charged by grocery stores to food manufacturers for the privilege of putting a product on the store shelf. They are simply
selling shelf space to anyone willing to pay. Grocers charge food manufacturers thousands of dollars, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars for
shelf space for a product.
Let me repeat that: Grocers charge food manufacturers thousands of dollars, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars for shelf space for a product.
Many times, the grocer makes more money off these slotting fees than they do by selling the product itself!
Wikipedia puts it this way:
A slotting fee, slotting allowance, pay-to-stay, or fixed trade spending is a fee charged to produce companies
or manufacturers by supermarket distributors (retailers) in order to have their product placed on their shelves. The fee varies greatly depending
on the product, manufacturer, and market conditions. For a new product, the initial slotting fee may be approximately $25,000 per item in a regional
cluster of stores, but may be as high as $250,000 in high-demand markets.
Many grocers earn more profit from agreeing to carry a manufacturer's product than they do from actually selling the product to retail consumers.
According to retailers, fees serve to efficiently allocate scarce retail shelf space, help balance the risk of new product failure between
manufacturers and retailers, help manufacturers signal private information about potential success of new products, and serve to widen retail
distribution for manufacturers by mitigating retail competition.
- Slotting Fees
This means as long as the stores make money from slotting fees, they wont care if the product gets sold or thrown away! Do you hear that - they can
just throw the product away and Still make a Profit !
It doesn't matter if People buy the product - the product has already been sold to the stores.Thus the food manufacture is satisfied. That food is
even insured so the grocers make sure they lose nothing and gain everything. I am sure this contributes to higher food prices too !
The chemical pushers can manipulate and strong arm their products onto store shelves by willingly paying these huge slotting fees. They can even
undercut other products shelf space by promising to pay higher fees than what the grocery stores charge.
This is all fine a good for the stores from a free enterprise standpoint - but what do you do if the food they are selling you turns out to be
This makes it much harder to get rid of these offending products. More people need to take an active stand and not let what the industry does behind
our backs dictate what foods wind up on our store shelves. People need to be vocal and tell the stores they do not want the stores to carry harmful
food products. People need to tell the stores they will not buy from those stores if they continue to make money off of selling or allocating space
for harmful foods.
Monsanto and like companies has the money to pay these stores slotting fees willingly - even at a loss perhaps - Why? Could it be they are really a
part of the Agenda 21 and Codex above - that these things are real and not just fantasies of conspiracy theorists?
My idea above for getting rid of harmful foods the consumers do not want can still work but it's going to take massive amounts of educating the public
on all of these issues. Spread the word of these issues to everyone you know. The sake of our health, our children's health and our very future as a
human race is at stake. May God, (if he exists) help us all.
