Check how much produce has travelled
It is always good to do some research and educate ourselves on that topic since we cannot actually see how much a product has travelled or all the processes it’s been through to appear in our local market.
There are, of course, other factors that have a role in our final decision on whether to buy food or not, the top ones being the price, taste and availability.
You should be able to find information on where they were produced on pretty much every back side of the packaging. Be attentive to the exact wording, as some might not be clear for marketing reasons. A common phrase is, for example, packaged in the EU. That does not mean the product came from the EU.
Ideally, you can shop from local food markets to both support your local farmers and be sure about where your produce is coming from.
