Building the local food infrastructure

Building the local food infrastructure | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

Connecting food to the local economy can provide more people with greater access to local foods. Making it happen is another story since the necessary infrastructure was gradually dismantled over the past 70 years in favor of a national/global food system that promises low prices, year-round accessibility of products and convenience.

 

A food system involves all the steps from “farm to fork” including production, processing, packaging, marketing, sales and distribution. A handful of corporations now largely runs this system, but people in communities all over the country remain undaunted in their attempt to build their own local food system.

Yikes! USDA Proposes Privatizing Poultry Inspection - Food Integrity Campaign

Yikes! USDA Proposes Privatizing Poultry Inspection - Food Integrity Campaign | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

Disappointing news came from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Friday regarding a new proposal to “modernize” the country’s poultry inspection, although the agency would have you believe it’s actually a good idea. In an attempt to “save money for businesses and taxpayers while improving food safety,” the USDA plans to expand a pilot program – the HAACP-Based Inspection Models Project (HIMP) – that essentially shifts responsibility away from government inspectors at chicken and turkey facilities to the companies themselves.
