Food Issues

The politics of what food to eat and where to buy it from is changing and evolving all the time. If you don't know your free-range eggs from your organic, it can all be a bit overwhelming and it's becoming increasingly difficult to find a definitive guide of how to eat ethically, shop responsibly and not spend a fortune.

But what does eating ethically even mean?

Well, for us it means:

  • supporting local shops and British farmers as much as possible, and ensuring that farmers are paid fairly whether the food is home grown or imported.
  • buying food that minimises any negative impact on the environment.
  • ensuring that the meat and dairy products we buy are produced to high environmental and welfare standards.

We've put together a list of the some of this issues we think are most important, with information on why we should care at all and what you can do. Of course these issues are changing all the time, that's why we here at OxNosh are dedicated to bringing you as much information as possible so that you can make up your own mind, think of it as a mental checklist everytime you buy food!

  1. Local food from local shops
  2. Eat the seasons
  3. Free range or organic meat and dairy products
  4. Sustainable Fish and Seafood
  5. Choose Fair-trade
