Global fruit bowl
Ever wondered about the origin of the fruit in your fruit bowl?
Today I decided to look at the labels to see exactly where the stuff came from.
I was shocked.
Green grapes (Brazil blackberries (Mexico) blueberries (Argentina) raspberries (Morocco) melon (Brazil) avocado (Dominican Republic) pineapple (Panama) oranges (Spain) banana (Jamaica) persimmon (Spain) kiwi fruit (Chile) lime (Vietnam)
Only apples and pears came from the UK
I dread to think of the carbon footprint.
And all this came from our local Co-op in Bridge of Allan.
