Food Stocks

Due to the human need to eat, food will always be in high demand and high production, causing their stocks to be stable and profitable. With organic food popularity and discretionary spending both increasing, food stocks are looking up for the next few years. Food can be invested in through commodities, restaurant stocks, packaged food stocks, or grocery store stocks. Standout food stocks include Chipotle (NYSE:CMG), Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM), and Kraft (NASDAQ:KRFT).
