Ethical Consumer Guide

Although my ultimate aim is to grow most of the fresh food I eat, I still need to buy certain food products while I’m in the ‘weaning-off process’, so I’m trying to food-shop more ethically, by which I mean I’m looking more critically at the food I buy, what’s in it and where it comes from, i.e. the ‘food miles’ concept.

So when I read about this consumer guide in this morning’s paper I decided I’d get one and take it shopping with me in future. Might even produce some discourse with fellow shoppers in the supermarket aisles.

There’s a website here where the guide can be consulted online and even downloaded.
