Since certified organic products usually carry a higher price tag than other products Wal-Mart was hoping to attract a different kind of shopper to its stores, those that usually shop at local farmer's markets or food co-ops. But demand for organic products by Wal-Mart customers has not kept pace with the company's plans.
