Do you know the age of the apple you just purchased from the grocery store?
I recently saw this article on Food Renegade, and found it completely fascinating. Did you know the average age of a supermarket apple is 14 months old? I honestly didn’t know anything about controlled atmosphere cold storage warehouses before reading this article, but the more research I do, the more disillusioned I grow with our food industry.
What do you think? Does it make you want to buy local and eat seasonally? Do you have the option to purchase any of your produce from nearby farmers?
Something to think about this Monday morning!
