Eating local food

If something’s grown locally, it can reach our local shop or greengrocer more quickly. So it can often taste a lot fresher. A shorter supply chain also means less carbon emissions – great news for Scotland’s environment.

Why look out for local food

  • It can be fresher and tastier
  • It can result in less carbon emissions, helping to create a cleaner, greener Scotland
