First, it hits the pause button on sodium restrictions. Currently, schools are having to make drastic reductions on sodium, and without this action, lunch ladies would have to figure out how to cut even more salt from already reduced-sodium meals that kids aren’t eating. The pause button will last for three years, giving schools more time to comply with the current level of sodium cuts. Perdue’s first policy move is to relax school meal standards, given the conditions of farm country right now. However, these standards were on track to become even stricter in the near future. It’s also helpful these relaxed standards were already cleared by all members of the Senate Agriculture Committee last year—both Republicans and Democrats—in the child nutrition reauthorization that passed the Committee. Don't Threaten.

The efficiency of the system even includes the farms where the BTB companies get their beans from. It can be assumed that such a tight system makes it easy to produce chocolate that is said to rival with any other chocolate on...

Gourmet chocolate becomes economic lifeline in Venezuela crisis

CARACAS (Reuters) - In a modest apartment near a Caracas slum, nutrition professor Nancy Silva and four aids spread rich, dark Venezuelan cocoa on a stone counter to make chocolate bars to be sold in local shops that cater to the crisis-hit country’s dwindling elite. Like some 20 recently launched Venezuelan businesses, Silva uses the country’s aromatic cocoa to make gourmet bars of the kind that can fetch more than $10 each in upscale shops in Paris or Tokyo. The oil-rich but...
