business news in context, analysis with attitude

I have some thoughts today about a session I moderated at the Organic Produce Summit (OPS) in Monterey, California, in which I spoke with Rich Gonzales, Walmart's vp of Global Produce Sourcing, and Tom Barnes, CEO of Category Partners, about the impact of inflation on consumer purchasing behavior.  One thing we talked about - how this can be an opportunity for value-oriented retailers to steal market share and sales from more high-end retailers in the organic produce category.
