Forget your local farmers market. Organic food is now a big business. And that’s making organic farmland an even bigger opportunity for investors.
America’s growing obsession with organic foods is one of the richest trends in the country. There’s immense investment opportunity – much of it in places most folks would never look.
Organics have grown from a mom-and-pop niche at the local farm market to a billion-dollar cash grab for the “big food” industry.
Most folks don’t know it – because the industrial food giants don’t want you to – but many of the most popular organic brands are now owned by large, multinational conglomerates.
Contrary to the idealistic image in the heads of many shoppers, these homegrown brands are no longer owned by the independent mom working out of her garage. Far from it.
Organics are big business.
As the trend has grown, the big food companies have opened their checkbooks. Nearly every popular organics brand is owned by, dare I say it, an unpopular food giant.
Take a brand as innocent sounding as The Organic Cow of Vermont.
It started small, but eventually was bought by Horizon Organic… which was bought by White Wave (which spun off of Dean Foods)… which was recently bought by the French dairy giant Danone…
CNAP COMMENT: You can forget about investing in the organic cow. It is already dead. Going nowhere. They fooled ya. Wanted the world to think all they had to do was stop the antibiotics and feed the cows real food and sing to them as they cut their throats and all would be well in the slaughterhouses again. Okay, call it a field of slaughter if it makes you feel all comfy inside as their blood drips from your own pores.
Nothing can change what it is until it stops. So the sooner you stop investing, the less money you’ll lose long term.
The future is all about plants, not animals. You can take that to Wall Street.
