Stories matter, maybe more than ever. We all have our own story and are also part of larger stories. How often and how well those stories are told can make the difference between: positive image or negative image; profit or loss; trust or doubt; awareness or ignorance; and success or failure. The story behind our food and how it is grown, prepared and transported is now an essential addition to the traditional priorities of taste, price, and convenience. In a competitive marketplace, it may not be enough to just offer a delicious and affordable product. Consumers want all of that and more in stories that share authentic experiences, sustainability and clear attention to the principles that matter to them.
