As is now evident to anyone paying attention, humans are rapidly using up all the world's finite resources. 

Water aquifers are being pumped dry, rare earth minerals are being depleted through aggressive mining operations, and fossil fuels are being burned up far faster than they can be replenished.

The energy industry argues that they can always find more oil no matter how high the demand escalates, but this is a mathematical impossibility. As the Earth's population continues to explode, energy usage skyrockets with it, and the consumption of energy by human civilization has already vastly exceeded what fossil fuels can sustainably provide.

Why the food supply is built on cheap fossil fuelsWhat most people don't realize, however, is just how much the global food supply relies on cheap fossil fuels.…

Besides they also need to look at keeping the costs down.

“There is a lot of mixed maturity in a box, so a lot of repacking needs to be done, unless somebody wants to invest in a repacking machine that can gauge ripeness.”

There are some machines available at a very high cost, so it need…
