Not Knowing Where Food Comes From

Not only are we reviled by instances of not knowing where food comes from–because of “trade secrets”–it’s quite possible it happens more often than many probably realize.

 

This Mother Jones article sheds some light on the subject.

 

What’s required by law in terms of transparency in produce sourcing is minimal: Only country of origin need be shared. Any information shared publicly beyond that is entirely voluntary. If something goes wrong and a safety issue is spotted, the FDA becomes involved and can audit a company’s supply chain information as part of its oversight and enforcement authority. Largely, the [food distribution] industry continues to say to the public, ‘trust us’.”

 

This is yet another reason we love knowing the farmers and the farms where we source a lot of the food we serve our clients and their guests!
