Kelly O’Boyle, section 334 15 October 2007 French Beans and Food Scares, Ch. 6 SUMMARY Chapter 6 explains how supposedly “objective” measures of supplier performance were put into practice through “subjective personal relationships.” It discusses the United Kingdom and its various organizations that help set standards for the food they consume. Practically everything with regard to food in Britain revolves around non-governmental organizations (NGOs, or “charities” in the United Kingdom) because of their strong opinions and powerful influence on the media. When a food scare occurs, it is very easy for the media to frighten the public and blow it slightly out of proportion. Supermarkets practiced social responsibility to advance their brand images and political power. NGO’s used this concept of social responsibility to gain their power over the supermarkets. Commercial grocery chains’ model of encouraging consumption as a form of self-expression dominated the cooperatives vision of consumption as a “social activity aimed at building collective identity and political awareness.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
