Walmart to Expand Organic Offerings

Statement of CSPI Executive Director Michael F. Jacobson

April 10, 2014

Walmart’s big move into organics means that more of our land will be farmed with organic methods and more Americans will have access to organic food at prices lower than they’d find at other retailers.

Like with everything else Walmart does, there will be trade-offs here. Regardless of the company’s behavior in other spheres, it has demonstrated before that its marketplace power can help drive valuable progress on nutrition and the environment.
