Benefits of buying locally
Better for the planet
Buying food locally helps the environment enormously as it helps in reducing the food miles. By cutting down on food miles, we are reducing the environmental impact of our products. Consequently, this cuts down on fuel consumption and air pollution.
As the foods you buy within your own community are made locally, they are fresher and more nutritious than food that are produced abroad.
Helps local workforce and economy
The money that is spent with local farmers and growers all stays close to home and is reinvested with businesses and services in our community. Also, when buying locally, you are helping your local workforce to grow and succeed.
You know where your food comes from
Many people ignore information about how the food they are eating is produced or where they come from. Being aware of these crucial information is important as you are more enlightened about the ingredients that goes into the food you are eating. This connects you to your food and allows you to make healthier choices for yourself and your family.
