Buying local produce can cause more emissions that importing food

Buying local produce can cause more emissions that importing food

Posted Wed, 09 Mar 2011 14:42:00 GMT by Kieran Ball

Buying local produce can cause more emissions that importing food from abroad. The fact is the energy that goes into produce not indigenous to the local environment can be vastly greater than what is required in the natural country of origin. In order to thrive in the non-indigenous locality, many foodstuffs require the addition of other elements over its life cycle, most notably heat, resulting in higher CO2 emissions than if the produce was transported from the traditional country of origin.
