A juggernaut in an otherwise sluggish industry, organic food has grown at 20 percent a year as products such as ketchup and corn chips vie for shelf space with conventional comestibles. Even Wal-Mart is getting in on this fruitful market, a sure sign that there’s more money coming down the conveyor belt. But what is organic food? Is it really better for you? Where did it come from? And why are so many of us buying it? In Organic, Inc., business writer Samuel Fromartz looks at organic food’s anti-industrial origins, its innovators, and its classic conundrum of free-market triumph—in which the industry ultimately came to risk betraying its founding ideals. A primer on the business of food and the nature of commerce, Organic, Inc., now includes a new afterword by the author detailing developments in the organic food industry since the hardcover’s publication.
