You think you’re too big to fail. You think you don’t have to tell the customer what’s in the food product they’re buying with your company name on it. Because it’s made far away, you lost control of what goes in or gets left out or gets substituted. You present a long list of “Maybes”. You don’t know for sure anything. This might be in it, or something else.
We just don’t know for sure all the ingredients that anyone contracted to make our product puts into our product. They say they present us with a comprehensive list, but as with all food manufacturers any number of ingredients may not be available when they need them, or at the price we want to pay, or they might just run out sooner than anticipated, so they use something else, or nothing else.
You are not too big to fail. Nobody, no company, no institution, no government. Kingdoms have fallen on a whisper.
If your company does not know what’s in the product they are selling, it’s time to shrink to a point whereby you have quality controls in place at all times guaranteeing the safety for all who consume or use your product.
Knowledge means safety. Tell the consumer what’s in it. They don’t trust you with their health and well-being, so stop expecting them to.
We don’t only want to know the allergens in a product, because science doesn’t know yet the extent of food sensitivities and unknown allergies that raise havoc with the human organism. We want to know what is in the product, that we for whatever reason might not want to consume. Stop force-feeding us your politics and ideology and philosophy via your food products. We don’t care what you believe, we the consumer have ‘the right to know’ what we’re purchasing on our side.
Honesty is the only policy that will work. List every ingredient and the source of that ingredient > animal or plant.
