Despite how much we embrace the global economy in 2016, perhaps not everything should hit our doorsteps from every corner of the Earth. I mean, exotic flowers are beautiful, but once they’re plucked, shipped and unpacked in a new climate, I doubt they’ll last long. If you’re coastal, you can feast on delicious seafood, but it becomes less fresh and more expensive to get your hands on some inland!
So if you wouldn’t trust other perishable good to last the long journey to where you are, why suffer passport-carrying vegetables?
You see them everywhere you look—carrots from China. Peppers from Mexico. We import millions of tons of vegetables from the rest of the world each year1, but is it really for the better? Sure, it’s our effort to supply a hungry nation’s demand, but why look elsewhere for delicious produce when we have so much available right here?
Burnac Produce and SUBWAY Restaurants are looking to address that very question!
