Released Tuesday, 20th November 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
In 2015, Kraft Foods changed the recipe to its Mac & Cheese: did you notice? It's one example of how several forces play into changing a company's practices for the better. We'll learn how it happened, and we'll also talk about some basic questions: When we buy products solely based on price, what is the true cost? What are our personal values, and how do we prioritize those values from day to day?
