Trader Joe's saves costs by packaging the food themselves with their own labels, is that how they are cheaper?


That, and slave labor.

Also... it's people! Trader Joe's Verde Chicken Burritos are made out of people!

I guess I'm going to be eating people in about 10 minutes.

Suck it, PenSnob.

Former executives say that Trader Joe's wants neither its shoppers nor its competitors to know who's making its products. And many suppliers aren't that keen on consumers knowing that they produce a lower-cost version for Trader Joe's either. Take Tasty Bite, which makes much of Trader Joe's Indian food. The Tasty Bite Punjab Eggplant ran $3.39 at a Whole Foods in Manhattan. The seemingly identical Punjab Eggplant that the Stamford, Conn., company makes for Trader Joe's is more than $1 cheaper.

So it's actually identical or seemingly identical?
I guess we don't know since Trader Joe's wants to keep its manufacturing a big, dirty secret.

Regardless, "Tasty Bite Punjab Eggplant"?
I'm not eating that.

They don't manufacture food. They sell it. Unless I'm confused about how grocery stores work.

Your original post says they don't want to tell you who manufactures their food that they are selling.

Fair enough. So how do you know how all the stuff at Whole Foods is manufactured?

They tell you where all the fresh produce and meat is from-specific farms even (especially if they're local).
I know I get most of my poultry from here.

I don't know where a lot of the boxed/canned goods are from, but we really don't but much of that stuff.
I would suspect I wouldn't be too pleased if I knew the specifics.

If you want to know who brews TJ's beers.
