As you can imagine, I was pretty shocked when I saw that organizations were just beginning to use local products. . .
I would have thought that using local products would be integral to the sustainability of the programmes, as well as maintaining cost effectiveness. Not to mention using culturally appropriate food!
Hasn’t this local food movement been happening around the world for decades? Why is it JUST spilling into the world of international development?
Maybe everyone was like me and just assumed that it was common sense to use local products?
