Going green and environment friendly is not only restricted to the way you keep our surroundings. It is also about various other things which also form an important part of your day to day life. Food certainly is one such aspect and perhaps one of the main reasons why people are in this field. However, the quality of food that is consumed by people is also of paramount importance. As technology has grown over the years many people have forgotten the good old practice of organic methods of growing food. It has been replaced with indiscriminate use of chemical and fertilizers in the name of increased cultivation and increased in productivity all around. However this has come with a price in the form of various diseases caused by excessive use of such chemicals.
If you are in the food manufacturing and processing industry, you certainly will have to cater to many non vegetarian food requirements. Whether you are a retail butcher or someone closely associated with the food industry, you should follow ethical and widely accepted practices of food growth and processing. As a beginning you must have the best of organic farms and other food sources that your animals eat. If you are in the meat processing business, it is incumbent on you to ensure that the meat is derived from animals which eat only organic food. This is easier said than done in today’s world where use of chemical and synthetic fertilizers has become rampant. Hence you should make a beginning as an organic meat butcher by going in for the ancient methods of organic cultivation like using earthworms and other natural sources for preparing the soil for food cultivation.
You should also have the best of food delivery service standards that match the organic way in which you manage cultivation of food needed by animals. Delivering food to customers is an art by itself and managing logistics is perhaps the most difficult thing. Further more if you are in the job of delivering big quantities of grass fed beef steaks time is a big challenge to ensure that the food stays fresh when it reaches the customers’ place. Apart from paying a lot of attention to the kind of foods these animals consume there are other loose ends that also need to be tied.
Given the hectic life style that most of your customers are in, the concept of meat home delivery is catching up very fast. This again is an enormous job and you should be rightly equipped and have the people and infrastructure to handle these difficult jobs. In fine, if you are able to walk the talk as far as the highest standards in ethical slaughter and organics food for animals are concerned, you can scale very high levels in your business. However, this is a time consuming affair and something that will take perhaps even quite a few years to achieve. You should be willing to learn and gather as much knowledge as possible. It indeed is a big learning curve and you should be prepared to learn from the mistakes that you might commit on the way.
