(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Sustainable products such as organic foods and specialty apparel typically lack economies of scale, which means companies are compelled to position them in the premium segment for upper-income consumers. The use of organic farming, energy-efficient technologies and fair trade sourcing usually puts a premium price on these products.
You may have noticed that organic food and products have expanded from specialty stores into the aisles of mass-market retailers and supermarkets. And you may have noticed that some of these products have moved out of special sections within those mass stores onto shelves next to mainstream products, directly competing for consumer dollars.
