Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Hey - I feed my Lab Natural Balance. I dont know much about Del Monte foods....can we expect Natural Balance to go down hill? Does Del monte has a history of food problems?
Profit becomes the #1 objective when any premium name is purchased. "How can we produce the (sort of) same product for less money and sell it for the same?" Hmmmm well we can source products from cheaper distributors (ie overseas) we can out-source production (to the cheapest bidder).
A good example would be Innova. They were bought by P&G and within 2 years have had their formula changed and now a recall of basically every product.
