Many families who formerly dined out for holiday meals will switch to enjoying delicious meals at home, and the season's comfort foods feature potatoes and onions prominently. Choosing organic produce contributes to the health of the meal as studies show that organic foods contain higher levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants all highly sought after in today's health-conscious climate.

Morning Kiss Organic is prepared to pack high-quality potatoes and onions to retailer specifications including three-, four- and five-pound bags. Retail promotion opportunities abound with these items sure to be in popular demand. This season's crop of organic potatoes is East Coast-grown, including from farms in Massachusetts, Maine and Prince Edward Island.

"Now is the time for staying home and enjoying savory soups, stews, and sides choosing Morning Kiss Organic potatoes and onions with which to craft these dishes increases their health benefits, and is also a feel-good choice for the environment. We're proud to offer an exceptional organic crop and look forward to partnering with retailers to bringing potatoes and onions to family tables in New England and beyond," said Michael Guptill of Morning Kiss Organic.

A healthy choice within a balanced diet, potatoes contain no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

Onions add flavor to dishes without adding salt or sugar, are also low in calories, and contain good amounts of fiber and folic acid.

The decision further advances Wholesums goals of presenting innovative and disruptive products to market and bolsters their role as leaders in organics.

In this new role, Kuniyoshi will work to develop new and differentiated products and refine Wholesums current offerings by analyzing different varieties that could increase quality and productivity. She will also lead researching new methods and procedures to combat pest and disease in organic production systems to help further advance the current knowledge and understanding of organic plant nutrition.

Organic growing requires more strategy and overcoming challenges, and Harumis skill and experience are very well suited to facing these challenges head on, said Theojary Crisantes, chief operations officer of Wholesum. We are very excited to have Harumi join the Wholesum team and work to support our mission of growing organic produce for peoples well-being and making it more accessible for all.

Kuniyoshi has extensive professional experience in research and development both privately and within the academic world for product development, disruptive technologies, and cropping systems. She has most recently worked in specialty crops.

At heart, she is a foodie, loves cooking and sharing good food and culture.

I am very excited about shaping the research and development culture and program at Wholesum from the ground up, said Kuniyoshi. I see it as a challenge but also a great opportunity to influence the growing system at a macro level.

In a Pandemic, We Buy What We Know – Harvard Business Review

Posted: at 9:48 am


without comments

Experts have predicted that the pandemic would lead to seemingly-contradictory surges in sales for both health food and junk food. Whats at the root of this apparent paradox? New research suggests that the presence of a contagious disease elicits powerful emotions of fear and disgust, which push consumers towards more familiar food options whether thats a kale salad or a Big Mac. In this piece, the authors describe how this effect has driven purchasing behavior trends during the pandemic, as well as the implications of these trends for how consumer businesses should think about marketing and product strategy decisions right now.

Back in May, Unilevers CEO predicted that consumers would eat healthier during the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the CEO of McDonalds remains confident theyll return to Big Macs and other familiar favorites.

Certainly, both cant be right.

Or can they?

Organic and healthy food sales are in fact surging but so are sales of cookies and salty snacks. After years of struggling to win over increasingly health-conscious consumers, well-known brands such as Oreos and Doritos have been selling more than ever in the last several months, and McDonalds Drive Thru business is booming.

So whats going on?

Evolutionary psychology offers a simple explanation: humans are wired to feel powerful emotions in response to contagious diseases, and these emotions affect consumer behavior in surprising ways. Our recent large-scale analyses and lab experiments confirmed that simultaneous surges in sales of both Big Macs and kale salads are logical expressions of two key emotions that consumers are experiencing right now: disgust and fear.

Past research has shown that people react to indications of contagious disease with disgust: we instinctively move away from someone sneezing in a crowded train car; we avoid people coughing violently on the street.

But its not just a matter of being repulsed. The possibility of contracting a contagious disease also elicits fear and a sense of loss of control, pushing us to seek the familiar and avoid the foreign.

To better understand the links between disease, emotion, and purchasing behaviors, we performed two large empirical analyses using data from the CDC, Google Flu Trends, and Nielsen, as well as four lab experiments examining how the presence of disease affected both emotional state and household purchases in four product categories: paper towels, junk food, soup, and batteries. In our experiments, we had participants read about either a contagious disease (the flu) or a non-contagious disease (heart failure), and then tested their preferences for familiar versus unknown products.

The results confirmed our hypothesis: thinking about a contagious disease increased both fear and disgust, and in response to these emotions, the participants attempted to regain control by seeking out the familiar brands they knew and trusted. Without even realizing it, people have been doing whatever they can to assert control over a chaotic world and that extends to their decisions in the food aisle.

Specifically, our empirical analyses found that households bought more of all the products we studied when disease was more present in their area, but they bought more familiar products at disproportionately higher rates. These findings can help to explain recent purchasing trends.

Booming organic foods sales may be appear to be at odds with long lines at the McDonalds Drive Thru, but our analysis suggests that these two seemingly-inconsistent trends are in fact reflections of the same emotional state: In the face of a contagious disease that elicits fear and disgust, consumers turn to the most familiar options (whether thats health food or junk food).

Even when there are no rational reasons to turn down unfamiliar options, our findings suggest that consumers are increasingly favoring familiar brands in many different product categories. For example, while people have been stocking up on more soup across the board during the pandemic, sales of more familiar soup brands such as Campbells have risen disproportionately. Similarly, our analyses found that right now, people are more likely to put traditional Oreos in their cart, rather than the trying out the latest new flavor. In the face of so much constant fear, an unfamiliar Oreo seems to be a risk that many consumers are simply unwilling to take.

What do these trends mean for brand marketers?

For one, while innovation is generally a good thing, right now might not the best time to start getting creative with consumer products. While you may be excited about advertising the latest potato chip or ice cream flavor, you might be better off waiting for a time when consumers are feeling a little less fearful.

On the product strategy side, our findings demonstrate the importance of focus. Restaurants and manufacturers may be facing capacity constraints due to social distancing requirements, but those limitations can also have a positive effect: they force organizations to concentrate on the products that consumers value most. The most successful companies have focused resources on their traditional bestsellers to meet increasing demand for these familiar products, rather than investing in new product lines or sales strategies. For example, after rolling back to a limited menu with just its most-cherished products, McDonalds reversed a decline in sales that began in 2013, and growth in its stock price has outpaced the S&P 500 since March.

In normal times, customers often make purchasing decisions based on practical considerations such as a products healthiness, value, or price. But when consumers feel uncertain or afraid, these practical concerns can become overwhelmed by their emotional reactions. In the face of a contagious disease in particular, fear and disgust shift peoples natural desire for familiarity and predictability into overdrive meaning that Big Macs become more popular again and Oreos fly off the shelf, even as sales of organic food surge. Understanding how emotions influence consumers choices is key to developing an effective marketing and sales strategy during the pandemic and beyond.

Gary Maunakea-Forth: The co-founder of MAO Organic Farms wants sustainable food-based agriculture to grow in Hawaii – Honolulu Star-Advertiser

Posted: at 9:48 am


without comments

Mahalo for supporting Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Enjoy this free story!

How does MAO Organic Farms and its nonprofit social enterprise model fit into Hawaiis agricultural sector?

During the past 150-plus years, Hawaiis agriculture has been dominated by industrial sugar, pineapple and GMO seed production. These agribusinesses have controlled local land and water systems to the detriment of growing/eating our own food. We feel organic, regenerative agriculture represents a more sustainable, ecological and just future for local agriculture we can supply local demand, and at the same time malama and aloha aina.

So yes, absolutely, nonprofit social enterprise holds great promise in scaling local organic agriculture. It can be mobilized to, for example, raise investment capital and conservation funds to acquire large tracts of prime land, and grow an agriculture sector that is environment- and people-friendly. It gives us time to regenerate soil, plant agroforestry systems (trees!), and, most importantly, to inspire and train a new generation of agroecological-minded young farmers. MAO is among a cadre of local organizations that have chosen to use this model (see http://www.hiready.net for many others).

What will your new processing facility be used for?

From the get-go we have tried to manage the entire farming process, from land regeneration and planting, to harvest, wash, packing, sales and distribution. Over the past 20 years, our wash/pack/refrigeration space has been a factor limiting our growth. The new processing facility will be much larger than our current facility, will have eight times more refrigeration space, and were introducing a fairly awesome conveyor wash system. All this will increase our food production and handling capacity tenfold, and enable us to radically increase our production of prepackaged items like our sassy and powerhouse salad mixes. We also intend to introduce a range of value-added products using fruit and vegetables weve grown.

How has the coronavirus pandemic changed the local market for fresh produce?

Its very sad how the coronavirus pandemic has hit the restaurant community. Small independent restaurants are super important. More than just providing great food, theyre our gathering/communing places and they deserved more government support to get them through this.

Our points-of-sale are diverse and include natural-foods stores, traditional groceries, farmers markets, CSA (community supported agriculture) and restaurants. When the pandemic hit in March we were able to pivot. Our direct-to-consumer CSA program tripled in size (mahalo, ohana), and we started to sell to institutions like the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center through the CARES Act.

One major takeaway from the past eight months is that local consumers seem even more committed to supporting local farms. For example, even in difficult times, our Kakaako farmers market sales have increased 40% since this time last year. If Hawaii can fully shift our farming mentally from a silver bullet, one product fits all approach to one that grows a biodiversity of organic food crops, I believe the local food movement will be more resilient in a crisis and present a real opportunity to diversify the economy.

What will it take for local farmers to compete successfully against mainland imports regarding price and product availability?

While farming is very risky, and there is a very thin margin, I think there are many local producers already successfully competing against imported foods whether its due to price or availability. Our experience working with Foodland and Whole Foods is that price is not the issue; more important is consistency, quality, an abundant supply, freshness, food safety, and then telling the story of who, why and how we grow food.

MAOs organic farm production and youth development mission are integrated: Theyre inseparable, and (thankfully) that seems important in this day and age, so we try to tell our story. The trend is really encouraging.Over the past 20 years, weve witnessed a massive switch toward supporting local organic, largely driven by the commitment of end consumers.

How do you persuade people to eat their vegetables?

Young people on the farm are generally curious and experimental, and we tend to always put food in front of them. They can take home our veggies, we cook on the farm together, they get to eat at local restaurants (when theyre open), and were always talking food. Last Friday during early harvest, we were discussing the best MAO veggies for tacos (the winners were cilantro and arugula). So its a process of engagement, empowerment and immersion.

Once our interns are in college classes like Hawaiian studies, they get to unravel the injustices in the industrial food system and theyre fully committed to eating a diversity of local organic food.

Personally, at home with our kids and grandkids, its all of these things, and we set a big table and cook/eat together.

BONUS THOUGHT

Of everything that MAO Farms produces, what is your favorite to grow? To eat?

(LOL) Cilantro and arugula. But thats this week; it changes often. Im still amazed that I put a seed in the ground and come back a few days later and its germinated into something that will feed people. The whole biological event still blows my mind.

THE BIO FILE

>> Job title: Managing director and co-founder of MAO Organic Farms

>> Professional experience: Organic fruit and vegetable farmer the past 20 years; previously worked in micro-finance, small business development, job training, community development

>> Personal background: Born and raised in Aotearoa, New Zealand; came to Hawaii in late 1980s; age 54; married to Kukui (our executive director and a co-founder of MAO); four children, three grandchildren.

>> Personal interests: Rugby (played from age 5-30, attended last two Rugby World Cups); cooking/eating with ohana, beach with the kids, gardening with Kukui

>> Other things I like: Dark satirical comedies like Monty Pythons Life of Brian; old Hawaiian music and Tom Waits

Consumers are advised to check product they have in their homes and discard any product matching the production description, UPC codes and Harvested-On dates listed above.

This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a package of Dole Organic Romaine Hearts 3pk yielded a positive result for pathogenic non-O157 E.coli STEC in a routine sample collected at a retail store by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. There is no indication at this time that this positive result is related to any illnesses nor consumer complaints and it is not associated with the strains connected to the ongoing outbreaks currently under regulatory investigation.

No other Dole products are included in the recall. This voluntary recall does not apply to any bagged or clamshell salad romaine product. Only the specific Organic Romaine Hearts listed, with the exact UPC codes and Harvested-On dates identified above, are included in the recall. Consumers who have any remaining product with these UPC codes and Harvested-On dates should not consume it, but rather discard it. Retailers and consumers with questions may call the Dole Consumer Center at 1-800-356-3111, which is open 24 hours a day.

UA Professor Seeks To Understand Obstacle To Organic Farming In The South – KUAR

Posted: at 9:48 am


without comments

A research project by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture is hoping to understand why more farmers in the south don't produce organic crops. Professor Michael Popp from the Fayetteville campus designed a survey to collect information about types of crops and obstacles to organic farming in the region.

"There are weed control issues. There are production method issues. There's uncertainty about price premiums [farmers] can attain," Popp said. "There are worries about whether those premiums would erode if you produce too much organic food."

Understanding which of those are the biggest obstacles to farmers in Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee could lead to more organic production. Winrock International, a partner in the project, plans to award grants for organic farmers based on data from the survey. Growers with farms of all sizes and products are being asked to take the survey.

"Something else we're trying to find out with the survey is whether interest is larger or stronger among smaller producers or larger producers or what the trends are," Popp said.

The online survey, designed to take approximately 10 minutes to complete, will be available through the end of December.
