“We have the perfect climate for growing mushrooms in the UK and Ireland and we
grow more than enough mushrooms to supply the whole retail market. So
why are we importing mushrooms from over 1,000 miles away rather than
supporting local? Research shows that shoppers are making an effort to
reduce food miles, but the origin of their food is not always made clear.
More needs to be done to help consumers make positive choices to
help the environment and local agriculture.”
