In Canada, we import more than 53% of our vegetables and almost all of our fruits!

Amazing and S-C-A-R-Y news. I’ll share this info with all my contacts. Thanks for helping us eating more locally with your farmers’market menu.

This doesn’t supprise me at all, and in fact, has dumbfounded me for many years. The other night I was at Loblaws (disclamer, I buy my catfood there, but not much else!) and spent some time looking at the fruit and veggies. I found much less than 53% from Quebec. In fact the labels were very misleading making one THINK they were buying a Quebec product when in fact they were buying some “close to Quebec” mainly Ontario.
