Postcode Produce thought it was about time to publish some of your ideas and tips on how to eat locally. We interviewed a few people and asked some questions, and here ares some of their quotes to help you help yourself through local eating!
“It’s really important to support your local farmers because the more we rely on foreign food, the more these farmers will go out of business and we’ll be left with nothing that is fresh and local! An extra dollar isn’t much really for something that tastes better and supports your local area” says Fiona Manning (35) from Sydney, Australia.
“Yeah I don’t mind paying a little more for food if I know it’s been made in Australia. At least then I know it hasn’t got any bad stuff in it that you might get from oversees food” says Josh Harrington (23) from Sydney, Australia.
“I think it’s a great idea! If we had an aisle in the supermarket which only had 100% Australian made food, then at least people could see that it’s an issue, and become more aware that Aussie food needs to be protected” says Julia Rice (43) from Melbourne, Australia.
