Walmart plans healthier food

Hard as it may be to believe, Walmart understands sustainability and knows that its future profitability requires the company to be as green as possible. It also seems to get that sustainability isn’t just about the environment; there’s a social aspect to the company’s efforts as well. Take for instance yesterday’s news that Michelle Obama is working with Walmart to make healthy foods affordable.

Reducing salt and sugar as well as eliminating trans fats in packaged foods. Officials for the world’s largest retail chain also plan to cut the prices of fresh fruits and vegetables — and will build stores in low-income neighborhoods where consumers have few choices to buy food beyond gas stations and convenience stores.
