though breakthroughs in technology brought positive impacts in world trading, issues such as environmental destruction and economic impacts should be considered as possible negative results of increasing food demand in the world market.
From breakfast, lunch and until dinnertime, we consume various meals each day. Commonly, an American breakfast consists of perked-up beverage, coffee, and reliable cheese sandwich. These products are usually bought at grocery stores near the corner of our homes, unmindful of the product’s origins. When we do happen to look up, an international brand of coffee (Dio Chaang from Thailand) and cheese (Davisco’s cheese from South Dakota) can sometimes be observed. The typical process in manufacturing these products is this: a certain location is chosen for production and increase of raw materials and in turn, these materials are transferred to another state or country possibly for chemical processing and manufacturing. Most manufacturing companies randomly test their products as safety precaution before the packaging and distribution in various stores. From such a detailed manufacturing approach, issues arise on the use of oil in the transportation efforts as well as proper agricultural allocation of land during production of vegetative resources.
From a global perspective, several benefits have been viewed by most business analysts. One prominent benefit is focus on the agricultural condition of developing countries. Financial assistance is one of the provisions of foreign investors to local farmers and crop growers in return for crops and raw materials (“Globalization in food and agriculture,” n.d.). This assistance connotes a “stable” profit market for most farmers—a good point for their economic state. Additionally, with globalization, increase in crops is possible, without compromising land areas (“The environmental benefits,” 2004). With increased food demand, an aim at increasing the supply is also sought.
