Competition results

Where does our food come from?

At the fruit festival on 28th September 2013 Green TEA held a competition to show people how far some of the food in local shops travels before ending up on our shelves. Congratulations to Jennifer, who guessed correctly! This indicates how important it is to buy in season and to check food labels. It is now an EU requirement that all food is labelled with the country of origin.

Remember:
Buy local
In season
Less waste
Less meat and diary
