Yes, agreed, that it is better for me to buy things grown in Yorkshire rather than France etc
.... Some things seem particularly bizarre such as buying USAmerican apples at the same time as British and other European apples are easily available.
there is also the question of how
the mileage is covered. Buying lemons and oranges from Spain or elsewhere in the Mediterranean (that are brought to UK by train or boat) is clearly better than buying things which have been flown in from Asia/America. So we need to know how
things are transported - not always easily guessed ... apparently mangoes from India are flown here while mangoes from Argentina are boated ....
Truly, shopping has become a very tricky and time-consuming business: some of our supermarkets are now providing the information on labels (which are getting increasingly detailed and with ever smaller print
) ) ... but that's a good sign.
Are the same things happening in other countries?
