If you are fed-up with the supermarkets and basically being dictated to on what you buy, then may be buy as a co – operative could be the answer and the way forward in the future. For one you can control were the food comes from, how it was produced and being able to support the local food growers and suppliers. In essence you are taking control of the supply chain.
I think this is a great idea that more of us should be getting into as it has many benefits that are missing today, and would stop us from driving all over the place to get our foods, this would reduce all that import food and long distance which most add lots of extra food miles. It’s all about getting back to being local, buying local and eating seasonal foods.
The guardian has a very good report on this so check it out, “Supermarkets? No, thanks”
