I know I hate using the word Frisco for San Francisco, but I was trying to do a riff on the old Debbie Does Dallas, so I thought I'd give it a go. Anthony Bourdain's the Layover aired last night and was about San Francisco. He used to hate us and thought we were obnoxiously smug twits. Well, he came by and saw us once and changed his mind. This time I have to say he did San Francisco proud.I know I hate using the word Frisco for San Francisco, but I was trying to do a riff... more

From the blog post by Alex Muse (CEO of ShopSavvy, Inc., the creators of ShopSavvy)
"More and more produce items are sporting scan-able barcodes and we thought it might be cool if consumers could figure out where a particular fruit was grown. Did you know that 27% of produce is grown by family farms? We decided to partner with Top 10 Produce to help ShopSavvy users ‘Know Your Farmer’. The program is brand new, but over the coming months hundreds of farms will be added to the system. ShopSavvy users who scan produce will find pictures, maps, Facebook Pages, Twitter feeds related to the farmer who grew the fruit or vegetable."

Well, finally! I get to talk about food again. I’ve been reading quite a bit lately about people labeling San Franciscans who like food with the term which I assume is derogatory, “foodies” or more specific, “San Francisco Foodies”. I say derogatory because the word “smug” usually comes up in most cases.Well, finally! I get to talk about food again. I’ve been reading quite a bit... more

Small farms typically are limited to farmers markets and cannot access the wholesale market due to the expense of traceability technology. That is about to change.
A vote is expected on S. 510, the Senate version of HR2749. A big stumbling block is whether or not small farms will be exempted. This program was developed for success whether traceability is required or not because it is a marketing program, not a foodsafety program. It just so happens to also help on the traceability and foodsafety front.
