Tracking the number of calories in food in the United States may make you want to cry, but tracking the quality of consumer goods that consumers actually buy might make you want to cry just a little bit less. I mean you don’t really think about what goes into the making of something like carbon fiber steering wheels, do you? But, according to a 2010 report from the International Food Information Council and the Center for Science in the Public Interest, an estimated one out of three consumers rely on products marked as 100% organic to determine whether or not the products they purchase are safe and of acceptable quality.
While this number can be attributed to consumers becoming more interested in purchasing organic food products in an effort to be conscious of the chemicals and substances that may be used on them, there’s a huge portion of shoppers who only buy organic foods in an effort to feel good about what they buy. As we already know, one of the biggest complaints consumers have about organic foods is that a greater portion of the food’s nutritional value is not even in the package, let alone a higher yield in nutrition.
It’s become easier than ever to track product quality for both organic and non-organic goods, but tracking these products can get expensive, and it’s a lot of work for consumers to identify what’s bad quality. In fact, some the best private schools actually incorporate this type of QC into their fees, making for one less thing for you to worry about as a parent. Some consumers are still using products that haven’t been properly tested, which can leave them vulnerable to potential illnesses, health problems, and food poisoning. Consumers are faced with a lot of unknowns, and it’s very difficult to figure out exactly what that means for the price you pay and your health.
Depending on the quality of the product, these tracking systems can either cost pennies or hundreds of dollars, depending on the products. However, tracking your consumer goods comes with the benefit of knowing exactly what you’re purchasing. A comprehensive consumer goods quality control program can ensure that your food products won’t have any manufacturing defects, and also ensure that your health will be secured through better control of the quality of the food you’re consuming.
Consumer goods manufacturers can do everything from providing test kits to determine a product’s overall quality to providing you with much more detailed information about the manufacturing processes, like specific ingredients used in manufacturing.
Consumer goods manufacturers are required to provide an organic label with their products, but consumers can still pay close attention to the quality, whether or not they’re aware of the label. If a consumer has a choice between two products with similar prices, but one is organic, it would be in their best interest to consider the product that has been thoroughly tested for its organic quality. If consumers can put more thought into the product they purchase for health and wellness, they will probably be able to identify which products are worth buying. Tracking the quality of consumer goods has never been easier, but keeping an eye on your health isn’t.
