• Support your farmers and what they can do.

    Local produce is a lot better because you can get it quicker. It will also be a lot fresher instead of people from other countries having to put preservatives on it to make it stay fresh. You can also trace locally produced food. When you order food from other countries it has to be transported to where you live that increases pollution causing global warming. So over all local produce is better

  • It is better

    The reason local produce is better is because it doesn't have a chemicals on it that could be cancerous, it does not pollut the air or the sea as much as global produce does, the food would be more fresher and tastier. It is also supporting our local famers so they do not loose all of their money

  • In some ways, yes.

    Local food is better than global produce in that it is not chemically treated or is relatively treated very little, it supports local economies, which are the backbone of our country, and gets to people's tables in a short enough time that food nutrients are not compromised. Global produce offers more variety, which is also good and healthy and supports global farmers, but tends to lose nutrients in the shipping.

  • Yes, locally sourced food is much better then global product.

    Using locally grown food products has many advantages over product sourced globally from distance suppliers. First and foremost is the fact that local produce is going to be much fresher than its global counterpart. So it'll have higher nutrient content and taste better than produce that has been in the supply chain for weeks!

  • Yes, it is.

    Local food means you get it fresher and sooner, what could be better than that? While global food may get you different varieties of food you otherwise could not have since it does not grow in your area, it also means the food has seen some travel time. The local food is better and probably healthier.

  • Yes, it is.

    Local food can be better than global produce because it did not have to withstand long hours of travel time. When the food is grown locally, and those growing it know what they are doing, it can also be much healthier for you. Not to mention, if it is grown locally it is in most cases cheaper.

  • No, not always.

    There really is no absolute answer to this question as both types have strong merits. With local food, you can see it grown as you drive past, you get it fresh and you can gauge rough quality based on the weather. However, smaller, local providers can't always produce every type and strain of any given plant and they're working with a much smaller budget that sometimes means their food is a bit on the stringy side (not enough water, lean feed for animals and so on) and one bad storm wipes out an entire harvest.

  • No, not always.

    While local food often means you will get it fresher and sooner, that does not mean it is always better. Some food cannot be grown locally due to the type of weather and climate that area endures. In those cases it would be much better to get the food global than local.

  • Somewhat yes.. But we need Global also.

    Globalisation has allowed us to make all fruits and vegetables available all year round. You can no longer simply rely on just local food, as farmers can only grow certain produce during selected parts of the year. There are pros and cons to both options; local produce cannot be supplied all year round, farmers tend to get paid very little and their crops are solely reliant on the soil and weather conditions. Global produce comes from numerous farmers, therefore production is in the masses and variety is achieved. This also allows supermarkets to be stocked with produce all year round.
