What about the shift to organic, "natural" or healthier alternatives to the twinkie concoctions of gums and other fillers that make the classic treats Hostess offered?
If healthy and or conscience eating habits direct everyone to better sources of food, will people raise their arms up as old (big) names dwindle in the dust?
Is it worth even causing a stink seeing mainstay brands that sold processed crap disappear in the din of fresher foods being baked, grilled or broiled at a food market in your neighbourhood?
I don't really see it as a bad thing. If Kraft cheese slices were off the shelves tomorrow I would still buy my freshly unprocessed slices from the grocer as I have always done.
Yes, I 100% agree with you. The problem is that rather than seeing them close their doors and put thousands of people out of work, I'd rather see them change their paradigm. Perhaps break up into local markets? -- And continue to employ their workers.
But if, in their absence, local food producers thrive and grow, so much the better.
