Supermarket

Where does our food come from?

Nowadays supermarkets stock food from all over
the world. We are less aware of which foods are in
season in our country because we can get food
from other countries.

For example, strawberries are only in season in
Ireland between June and September, but we can
get strawberries all year round from other countries
or from heated greenhouses in Ireland.

How far do you think food travels to get to
the supermarket?

 Hundreds of miles?
 Thousands of miles?
