If you walk into the supermarket and are confused about which organic eggs to buy, it is important to understand a few things.

First, not all organic eggs are the same. In fact, there are massive differences in organic eggs, particularly in regards to how the birds were raised.

Second, don’t select a carton of organic eggs simply because it has the nicest, most attractive packaging. That doesn’t tell the whole story. Read more »

I have been consistently traveling to San Francisco for many years now but for some reason, Greens Restaurant was never at the top of my list.

And what a mistake that was because the brunch at Greens Restaurant might the best that I have ever had. Yes, ever.

Opened in 1979 as part of the San Francisco Zen Center and consistently among the most acclaimed restaurants in the city, Greens Restaurant has been a pioneer in working directly with local and organic farmers in the Bay Area. The fresh, super-high quality ingredients are immediately noticeable in each dish. Read more »

Organic Produce Summit takes place in California, Amid Record-Breaking Growth for the Sector

Last week in Monterey, CA, the very first Organic Produce Summit was held, and given the importance of produce within the organic industry, it was no surprise that this event was so successful and so well-received.

Last week in Monterey, CA, the very first Organic Produce Summit was held, and given the importance of produce within the organic industry, it was no surprise that this event was so successful and so well-received.

At the larger trade shows that I go to – Natural Products Expo West, Natural Products Expo East and Fancy Food Show – there is little to no presence of organic fruit and vegetable vendors. So, to have a dedicated event for organic produce makes a tremendous amount of sense.

And maybe that explained why the Organic Produce Summit was sold out, and featured 600 attendees and 70 trade show booths. Read more »

TAKE ACTION: Tell President Obama to Veto This Sham GMO-Labeling Bill

(To follow my day-to-day organic food adventures, please be sure to add me on Snapchat: maxorganic) Last week, the Senate exhibited absolutely no shame whatsoever and passed the Stabenow-Roberts GMO-Labeling “Compromise” bill 63-30. As I have written about before, this bill is an absolute joke and a total affront to all American citizens. Why?

Last week in New York City, I attended the Fancy Food Show 2016, one of the best food shows of the year.

While it is not an organic food show per se, there is an increasing amount of organic vendors and I would estimate that about 15-20% of the booths there do offer some type of organic product.  Read more »

It was business as usual in Washington, D.C. yesterday, as we witnessed a truly sickening and reprehensible display of selling out the American consumer.

Seeking to void Vermont’s GMO-labeling bill which goes into effect on July 1st, Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) agreed to a compromise — Dark Act 2.0 — that would make it illegal for states to label GMOs while simultaneously denying Americans the right to know what is in their food.
