Earlier this autumn, I had the opportunity to visit Gunthorp Farms, a pig and poultry ranch in scenic rural LaGrange, Indiana. As we drove, we passed what endless fields of corn and soy —a typical Midwest sight—before pulling up to a verdant, 140-acre farm teeming with pigs, chickens, and turkeys all out to pasture. Greg Gunthorp, a fourth-generation farmer, greeted us. His grandfather and great grandfather worked a 600-acre farm in nearby LaGrange, Indiana. In 1994, Greg bought his parents’ pig herd and set out to raise his pigs in a way that ensured the highest-quality meat and that felt right to him. Within a few years, he found himself selling his pigs for less than his grandfather had in […]

You might not expect to find a former financial analyst whipping up Shish Tawook marinade, garlic spread, and other gourmet Mediterranean sauces and dressings behind an unassuming storefront in Clinton Township, Michigan. But this is exactly where Teta Foods founder Tarek Abouljoud feels happiest. It all started a few years ago, when Tarek began craving a new career outside the financial sector. He’d always loved cooking Lebanese food and bringing people together over delicious meals. This passion, coupled with an old family recipe for Fattoush dressing he’d make as a child in his grandmother’s kitchen, sparked a business idea. But before taking the plunge, the analytical Tarek conducted a six-month feasibility study to confirm what he’d already suspected: People love […]
It’s no surprise to you, our customers, that people are shopping for groceries online more often. That’s what we confirmed when we polled 1,100 online grocery shoppers across the country in our first national survey. However, we were surprised to find that while the convenience of buying groceries online may save shoppers a trip to the store, most still rely on a number of brick-and-mortar stores as well as online shops to get their grocery shopping done each week. Check out more findings from our survey below and insights that Forbes and other media outlets are finding interesting.
