Eating local

Episode 9,  Jan 27, 2021, 11:55 AM

A locavore is a person who predominantly eats food that is grown in their local area. For the vast majority of human existence this was not something that required a name, it was the status quo. People didn't have the access to wide array of global food available at our supermarkets today. However, the consumers urge to understand and know more about where their food comes from is increasing with the rising awareness and urgency surrounding climate change. In this episode Séamus Murphy speaks to Reuben Chesters the founder of Locavore a social enterprise supermarket in Glasgow. Reuben talks about what drove him towards founding locavore, the importance of a local food system and the different reasons consumers are now seeking out the more sustainable options.
