IT'S YOUR RIGHT -
BSC, CA – Back in the day the original mandate was, a) you have the right to know what is in your food, and b) you have the right as a consumer to healthy ingredients over corporate profits. The second part of this mandate was trickier, mainly due to the distance between the people who control those decisions and the people who consume, like cattle, hence the buying public. The middle cattle prod – Moms Across America. Read a label, thank a Mom.
This original mandate was and is a freedom, the freedom for you to be able to do the aforementioned things, especially from the giants. Pictured above are two label pictures taken just a few weeks ago, at a Ralph's showing Heinz products. When the Moms started, those labels didn't exist because the public didn't know and didn't care such things. I was one of those people.
Today I still run into people who either don't know or don't care. There will always be that. You just can't convince everyone of the truth, but that was never the purpose or plan. The plan was to reach the people on the inside. We wanted to reach the people inside the walls that we couldn't reach, face to face, and say, 'Hey, feed us the good stuff because we deserve this as people of a free society. We deserve this because we are people just like you. We want to know what's in our food.' Above and following are examples that show the companies heard and are hearing our voices. Now it is up to the people to act on the listed ingredients and improve their waist lines with more than nutrition.
