McDonalds To Close 700 Locations After Major Profit Losses : Healthy Holistic Living
Amid falling sales and continued financial worries, McDonald’s will be closing a record 700 stores by the end of 2015. The news comes just as states like Vermont push forward with major GMO labeling initiatives that would likely brand many of McDonald’s’ ‘balanced’ meal options as full of genetically modified ingredients.
I’ve been very passionate about the latest financial developments regarding both McDonald’s and Monsanto, as they represent a key shift in the way that we view our food supply. With McDonald’s losing money on a monthly basis and attempting to appeal to the natural lifestyle crowd in order to stay afloat, we now stand at a pivotal point in our food supply’s history: will we finally be able to oust our monopolizing food corporations who refuse to remove many dangerous ingredients from their food?
