What a load of horse-puckey!
Apparently the economics of production of the food is not considered at all in calculations of "food miles".
When will this "carbon (dioxide) is a pollutant" rubbish just go away?
More later, maybe.
Here's another article of interest... that's got to be some pretty fantastic beef! And we are warned that food prices will double in the next ten years, as they have over the past ten years... funny how the producers of the food seem to still be struggling to make ends meet. What has this got to do with the prices and the mark up of the big two supermarkets? (Mind you, some of the smaller players have increased their prices in these past few years to match those of the Big Two, I note IGA prices have risen markedly, particularly for meat which is now mostly comparative to the Big Two.
