Truffle Media update for March 16, 2010, Persistence of the Primitive Food Movement

Agriculture Stories Being Told

  • The Persistence of the Primitive Food Movement From the Freakonomics Blog, "Americans are currently embracing a strange sort of primitivism. Bicycles are losing gears, runners are afoot in shoes designed to creatae a barefoot sensation (some are even running barefoot), and men are growing bushy Will Oldham-like beards. It’s all very curious and entertaining. But nowhere has our love for the supposed simplicity of the past been more evident than in food trends."
  • Food Cannot Be Ethical. Only People Can. A recent report, Ethical Food, attempts to address "Are ethical brand claims influencing food purchases? And if so, which claims matter most to consumers?". Unfortunately, this report is about creating a divisive environment around food, its production, and the people who work in the food and agriculture industries.
