InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

My investment philosophy is simple. Invest in today, what is going to be big tomorrow. Applied to the food world, this philosophy has one straightforward takeaway: Buy vegan stocks.

For years, Americans have been obsessed with their meat. Steak and potatoes; burgers; hot dogs. These are classic American meals that defined eating throughout the 20th Century. But today’s youth view meat-eating through an entirely different lens. They don’t see fancy steak dinners and juicy burgers — they see lines of cows, packed into hardly livable conditions, emitting tons of methane gas every year and contributing significantly to global warming. All just to produce a piece of meat that is actually pretty bad for your heart and liver.

Because they look at animal-based meat through this entirely different lens, they’ve shunned meat-eating.

According to a Utopia survey of 18 to 24

Food Safety And Security Is Top Of Mind For Consumers

Torri Donley

In fact, according to a new study1 from the Mars Global Food Safety Center (GFSC) that surveyed more than 1,750 people in the U.S., U.K. and China, more than half of respondents (52 percent) feel food safety is a top three (3) global issue – and 77 percent think it’s a top 10 global issue. Food insecurity has only been exacerbated by COVID-19, and 73 percent of respondents believe the novel coronavirus will impact the viability of the global supply chain and 71 percent believe it will have impact on global access to food.  These consumers think about food safety and security as much as climate change (39 percent) and pollution (38 percent).

“New food safety threats, like those posed by COVID-19, are constantly emerging through a combination of factors including global warming, increased globalization of trade, as well as changes in agriculture practices and food production,” said

Under the Government’s new tier system for local lockdowns, areas that are placed in the “very high” Tier 3 Covid-19 alert level will see pubs and bars forced to shut unless they serve food and alcohol as part of a sit-down meal.

Outlining what constitutes a “proper meal”, Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick suggested on Tuesday that, as long as food items such as Cornish pasties came with a side of chips or salad and were served on a plate, to a table, they could be considered as such.

“Robert Jenrick asked whether cornish pasties are ‘substantial meals'”



Mr Jenrick stated that packets of crisps would not count, however, as he

Torri Donley

Cruising through the streets of Seongnam, South Korea on her motorbike, 37-year-old Chey Young-ah works one of the country’s most promising coronavirus-era jobs — as a food delivery driver.

With the health crisis keeping millions at home, orders have shot up by some 40% this year in South Korea.

It’s the third-largest food delivery market in the world and the demand for drivers has never been higher.

Chey was an art teacher by day, but struggled to make ends meet after the health crisis forced her to shut down her classes.

So she’s traded in her paintbrush for a helmet, joining thousands of new drivers taking advantage of the delivery market boom.

“I was under pressure to find something new. Some people are struggling while others are expanding their businesses; fried chicken shops are booming, for example. I feel lucky I found this field at a time when deliveries are

South Korea food delivery giants rev up rider race amid coronavirus boom

Torri Donley

By Joori Roh and Sangmi Cha

SEOUL (Reuters) – In South Korea, some of the world’s biggest food delivery firms are scrambling to surf an estimated $4 billion wave of new orders, contracting thousands of new riders in a boom triggered by the scourge of the global economy – the coronavirus pandemic.

Koreans had already developed such an appetite for meal deliveries that the country ranked third in the world last year for food order services, according to consultancy Euromonitor. Now, tough social distancing rules and work-from-home policies to counter the pandemic have fuelled explosive growth.

South Korea’s food delivery market is expected to jump 40% this year to around $15.4 billion from $11 billion in 2019, Euromonitor data showed, topped only by China and the United States.

Surging coronavirus-era consumer demand has stoked orders, supported meal pricing and made the prospect of a career as a self-employed rider –
