The Global Grocer

Ever wonder where your food comes from? The Global Grocer can help. The site is a flash recreation of shopping and when you click on a product it gives you some information about that products origins and health and safety issues associated with it.

It looks like a lot of the food we used to produce ourselves is now imported. A by-product of free trade and globalization no doubt. This has so many ramifications economically and environmentally. Also, if the peak oil disaster scenario materializes how will we eat?
