How much of America’s food bill is already prepared take home meals? It is hard to imaging but it is growing. It could be a couple of burgers or a full meat, vegetable and dessert plate ready to eat. And the curious part is it is growing. More people are eating more and more of that stuff that is coming from a grocery store. In store dining or take home meals now accounts for two and one half billion meals bought at the grocery store. That comes out better than 10 billion dollars. I don’t know who put the figures together. But one source estimates that nearly 40 percent of American shoppers have already purchased food at the grocery store. Now 1 percent of us think grocery store cooked food is unsafe. Did I read that correctly? I did. No they didn’t say why.
That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner
