Sustainable food sourcing can be highly rewarding to everyone on many levels. In a restaurant where ingredients need to be carefully supervised for quality, sourced and replenished, it helps staff feel good about what they are serving and respectively, makes the customers feel safe about what they are eating. On a more individual level, say at home — one can be selective about what they buy when they check to see if they are supporting more seasonal produce and looking at the shelf life of the food they buy.
In a time when we don’t always know where our food comes from, and we have to grapple with having to keep up with changes in food sourcing and sustainability, seeking a quality of life in food is and should become an important part of our everyday thinking.
The value for healthy, natural and unprocessed food to me, is one of the greater things to offer. It’s a struggle in today’s world as there are various factors that make it difficult to sustain. But therein lies the desire even more so, to see the success of bringing good food and nutrition to the community. Going against the current is a hard thing but is not an option when you feel passionately about something and you just have to do it.
