Food Secrets You Should Know/Part 4
Home Delivery Prepackaged Foods is the new rave now. Why shop, prepare a meal when you can choose a selection of meals and it will arrive at your doorstep.
Just assemble the meal with everything included or pop it in the microwave and its all done.
At first when the concept came out, the company that set the precedent did very well. The idea from the corporate standpoint was to provide a nice protein with lots of veggies and carbohydrates and a nice sauce monitoring the percentage of sugar, carbs and fiber and to make it attractive and easy to put together.
A family could enjoy a great meal without even doing anything. The food was sent overnight. Who would say not to this arrangement BUT inflation impacted prices so the bottom line for the company's was drastically impacted. Then the cost to send overnight is very expensive and the price of goods increased dramatically. So, more companies jumped on board but they needed to use the cheapest cost of ingredients, sauces that were high in salt and sugar or cutting down on sauces, so the taste might be compromised. Then people that ordered it, never reordered because it eventually got more expensive. Repeat business is the life blood of these companies so although new companies are jumping on board, those companies that started early are being acquired by other multinational or just closing up shop.
Yes, you'll get a 2nd reorder at a discount but if you had a bad experience, even if the second is a discount, I would think that you wouldn't consider it.
