Food miles

Food miles: The true cost of putting imported food on your plate - Independent
http://environment.independent.co.uk/gr ... 600309.ece
If we want to help growers in poor countries, we must appreciate the difference between Fairtrade and organic labels - whether or not we are about the environment. Fairtrade guarantees that individual producers have earned a living wage and that their community has accrued some further benefits from the trade. Organic certification agencies have always been silent on the question of wages and are not a guarantee of food that is ethically or equitably grown.
