I have been saying for quite some time that it was questionable whether Wal-Mart's push into organics was really working. Business Week now points out that it is not.
A number of organic farmers across the country say that Wal-Mart hasbacked off of aggressive plans to offer more organic foods. After placing large orders for organic apples and juices last year, the retailer is cutting back or stopping orders altogether.
So maybe the worries about Wal-Mart corrupting organics were overblown?
