|Next, Jessica McDonald delivers a very informative and stimulating report on health foods in France. She interviewed the manager of Espace-Bio, the major natural foods store here in Les Sables. She uncovered several important factors that affect the success of health food sales in France. Since Espace-Bio is a fairly small independent business, for example, it has joined a coop with other small vendors in order to increase purchasing power and keep prices competitive. She also noted that, largely for social reasons, the manager of Espace-Bio is not a strict vegetarian. There followed a lively discussion about French eating habits and the importance of food in this culture.|
