ABOUT THE FOOD & RESTAURANT INDUSTRY
As humans, we require food. That need to eat isn’t going anywhere, so food will always be in both high demand and high production. This makes their stock a stable and profitable one to own – either through commodities, restaurant stocks, packaged food stocks or grocery store stocks.
Here are three subsets of the food industry:
Farming includes all businesses involved in the production and collection of raw agricultural commodities. This includes things like corn, wheat, soybeans, rice etc.
Next those raw material foods must be processed into forms that may be more easily distributed and later sold to consumers.
The next step is getting the finished or unfinished food products into the hands of hungry consumers. Grocers are the distributors for “unfinished” food products (customers will buy them and cook meals at home), while both fast food and upscale restaurants distribute finished products.

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor has won our Award for the Best Stock Newsletter for the last 4 years.
We have been tracking ALL of the Motley Fool stock picks since January 2016. That's over 5 years and over 120 stock picks. As of Friday, Novermber 6, 2021, 19 of their 24 stocks picks from 2020 are up and the average return is 106% compared to the SP500's 50%. Take a look at some other FACTS about their service:
- The average return of their 24 picks from 2019 is up 108% compared to market's 68%; and 20 of those 24 are profitable
- Of their 24 stock picks from 2018, 20 are up, the average return is 248%, and 11 have more than doubled in price
- From 2017, all 24 of their stock picks are up, 12 have more than doubled and the average return is 254%
- And from 2016, 20 of 24 are up, 17 have more than doubled and the average is an amazing 451% ( thanks in part to them picking SHOP)
- So the point is that not every one of their picks goes up, but the longer you hold them, the better they have performed, at least since 2016
- Tesla (TSLA) picked January 2, 2020 before the crash and it is up 1,320%
