Kroger in the past few years has had to make decisions from deciding whether to sell GMO Salmon in their stores to decisions dealing with the animal rights organization PETA. Because the grocery business is constantly changing there is always risk in their decision making.

Phil 305 Bayer Case Study The case study that I previously wrote was about pharmaceutical company Bayer headed in Baytown, Texas. The case was particularly talking about company’s negligence towards safety issues that were constantly showing up. There were several dangerous events occurring in their factory where sizable number of people was injured or even died.

In the other hand Bayer Company in proud of their ethos, and they are presenting it through word LIFE.
An extremely important court case during the Progressive Era, Muller v. Oregon not onl improved the working conditions for women, but expanded the need for legal evidence for a court case too. It all began when women workers were forced to stay longer than their normal time, violating an already-existing Oregon law that stated women could not work longer than 10 hours. Curt Muller, the boss, was fined, but soon brought the case to the U.S. Supreme Court so it could be overturned. The event reached Florence Kelly, head of the National Consumers’ League, and she quickly recruited a skillful lawyer, Louis D. Brandeis, to help her with the case. With only a month to prepare and the Court having struck down a similar law in New York to regulate hours, the court hearing began.
New mothers have two main choices when feeding their babies: breastfeeding or formula feeding from a bottle. Each choice comes with its own moral imperative and there is much for a mother to consider. The benefits of breastfeeding are well established, however, a mother will have to weigh these benefits against other factors, such as the social stigma of breastfeeding in public; potentially reduced milk supply due to drugs taken in labour; the fear of losing her figure; and the need to be liberated from the demands of constant breastfeeding. Information bombards parents from a range of sources in the UK: formula companies, the NHS, the National Childbirth Trust and the pro-breastfeeding lobby, for example, La Leche League. This information can often be conflicting, promoting the advantages of one way of feeding over another.

Greene’s crop made up about 20% of GRT Salads production, yet GRT marketed that 80% of their vegetables were grown by Greene Gardens. Both of these companies are stakeholders in this story, with Seth Greene and his company being at the forefront. Greene’s dilemma begins with the FDA’s report on September 14, 2006, when they issued a warning to all consumers to avoid eating fresh bagged spinach. Their report stated that an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 had surfaced in eight different states, resulting in the death of one person and 49 others becoming ill. This initial report stated that the first reported case occurred several weeks earlier, but health officials were unable to determine spinach as the culprit until more cases were reported and they were able to find a common link between them.

They waited for the facts of the police report, and this allowed them to form trust between their costumers and themselves. Johnson & Johnson made the choice to help the community, and do the right thing. Johnson & Johnson made the choice to put their costumer’s safety first.

It is estimated that one out of six bottles is recycled, this means that over
Great Lakes: Great Decisions Ignatius (Nate) B Perry Sr Professor Natalie Marsh Business Administration Capstone BUS 499 April 9, 2012 Perform an analysis of the social / demographic, technological, economic, environmental / geographic, and political / legal / governmental segments to understand the general environment facing Great Lakes. Describe how Great Lakes will be affected by each of these external factors Based on the information provided by the Great Lakes study, I have concluded that Great Lakes was stuck between a rock and a hard spot. The pressure the company was under to stop selling its lead additives for lead gasoline was getting to be unbearable and the company’s reputation was going down the tubes pretty fast.

The technology in the developing countries had progressed to nthe point where they didn’t use leaded gasoline at all, but the undeveloped countries technology had not gotten there at this point.
