    "All of the ingredients we use are home-grown in the United States."

    "We can save 20% in labor costs if we relocate our plant to the Midwest."
    FACTUAL, NOT EMOTIONAL

    "Collectively our management team has over 100 years of experience in the business."
    FACTUAL

    "The new company president invites a different employee to breakfast each day in order to get to know each of the staff members."

    I know this was posted a long time ago but I am taking this class now and I am sure others are too. After breaking it down like that I would definitely go with A as the answer. Being that it is Homegrown there is always a sense of emotion involved. Hope that I am right and this helps others as well.
