(NaturalNews) Costco can be a little unpredictable when it comes to embracing natural, healthy foods. In 2015, there was a petition against the company to urge it not to sell GM salmon and the company has also been under scrutiny for salmonella-contaminated chicken. But now it seems that Costco might actually be doing something right – something that not only benefits the US consumer but also benefits organic farmers.
As reported by The Seattle Times, Costco is finding new and creative ways to meet its customers’ growing demand for organic produce. Organic foods is one of the fastest growing categories in food sales, and Costco is really trying to keep pace with this exponential increase in demand.
According to CEO Craig Jelinek, “[Costco] cannot get enough organics to stay in business day in and day out.” Therefore, the new strategy involves Costco actually playing a part in building this food supply, and the company is developing a variety of initiatives to help boost the supply of organic food.
