  • The Food and Beverages Industry

     

     

    Every year, Food and Beverages companies rake up bazillions (for lack of a better figure) of dollars for their products. The fast food industries have taken the world by a storm. With such a successful takeover of the world (for lack of a better term), one has to stop and wonder how such a phenomenon has happened. There are a number of factors that serve as the impetus for such an event. Here are three interdependent factors coming from a purely non-expert point of view:

     

    First and foremost, fast food industries all offer a basic human necessity:  Food and Drink. As such, no matter how much money we try to save from our gas expenditure, clothing, education, and every other aspect we can think of spending money into, we never hold back from spending our money  on food and drinks. Thus, the average Joe/Jane finds himself/herself spending on food and drinks everyday for the rest of his/her life just because he/she needs it. And what happens to all this money? It turns into a Food-and-Beverage-company yearly statistic.

     

    The first factor alone however does not guarantee such a complete success of the Food and Beverage companies. Were it not for the second factor, the Food and Beverage companies would have gone bankrupt the minute they unfurled their corporate sails. The second factor is laziness. Yes, laziness. Gone were the days when people prepare their own food. Of course, we cook our own food here and there sometimes, but the irresistible allure of affordable, instant, ready-to-eat, and tasty food undermines all human reason. Never mind the artificial ingredients, the MSG, the preservatives, the fat, the sugar! It's instant food for Pete's sake! Who wouldn't want that?

     

    The second factor, like its predecessor, does not single-handedly deliver reason at the doorsteps of Food and Beverage companies. It's much more complicated than that. Well, actually not that complicated but a tad more complicated than just two factors surely. The third and final factor that completes the interdependent factors that gave way to the success of Food and Beverage companies is the present lifestyle of the average people. The second factor, laziness, is most of the time not by choice. It is not so much as laziness as it is the lack of time. The present system under which governs how we live our lives gives us little to no time to prepare and cook our own food. Being in such a state, people would naturally opt for fast food, one that would not hamper tight schedules.

     

    Learning the factors, we then go into the primary pros and cons of such a phenomenon as this.  Well, of course, it is always convenient to have food on the ready. When your hungry and you don't have the time to do your own cooking, just look for your friendly neighborhood Food and Beverage company, Its most likely just across the street. They're everywhere nowadays. That is single-handedly the best thing about the success of Food and Beverage industries—you never go hungry for long as long as you have the cash to pay for a meal. The bad side is that the proliferation of fast food chains has been the cause of a great number of illnesses related to unhealthy dietary practices.

     

    So, in the end, nothing is really bad when we learn to control ourselves. Eating at fast food chains now and then wouldn't have us keel over and die of a heart attack the minute we finish our meal. All we have to do is to learn to moderate things. When we have time, it is always good to prepare food ourselves, failing that, have someone prepare food for us just as long as its not fast food.
