Reasons to eat seasonal veg if you can…
– Food has travelled fewer miles meaning a lower carbon footprint. Out-of-season berries account for around 11 per cent of the UK’s food-transport emissions.
– When food hasn’t travelled in containers it retains its nutrients so it’s healthier and tastier. Vegetables and fruit start to loose their nutrients within 24 hours of being picked.
– Food in season tends to be cheaper as it’s grown in natural conditions. Many resources and artificial techniques are needed to grow food out of season eg. industrially heated greenhouses.
– Supports your local community. Food in season doesn’t need to be shipped from abroad or made in artificial conditions meaning it can be grown at your local farm.
