Air Mile Meals
Nowadays all we have to do to get the ingredients for a nice meal is pop down to the shops and peruse the aisles looking for what we want to buy. But in many cases the food sitting on the shelves and in the fridges and freezers has travelled a long distance to be there.
Fruit and vegetables get imported when their growing season in the UK is over and more exotic goods are flown in to suit our tastes, with some food also transported over to fulfil high demand!
We have explored exactly how far some the food in some classic dishes could have travelled to end up on your plate in this infographic, “Air Mile Meals”.
