At Bravura we always try to buy local produce wherever we are in the world. There are a number of reasons why it’s best to by local 0km food over imported products.
The most important from a Chefs point of view is it looks better and tastes better. It hasn’t been sitting around in a port for days before reaching its destination so will be an all round better product.
When produce sits around producers need their stock to be able to last as long as possible so chemicals are used to enable a prolonged shelf life.
A shorter period of time will have passed from when the produce left the farm to arriving on your table so it is likely that less nutrients will be lost.
Local produce is safe, suppliers providing on a global scale will do whatever it takes to get the job done and the money in.
Wherever possible we ask you to think, Go Green – Local Produce. Support local workers over nationwide supermarkets for a healthier body and community.
