I now work for Waitrose. I love my job and the company but it galls me to see blueberries from Guatamala, avocados from Peru and even apples from New Zealand. But , and Mike says, it's all about Supply and Demand. Gone are the days of eating seasonal, locally produced fruit.
The flip side is that for years we've told " developing countries " to " trade their way out of poverty" So after Kenya , for example, invests millions in infrastructure to produce crops, do we turn our back on them to save on " food miles"??
