Shopping survey will help grow local food and drink industry


Recommended Posts

It's a poorly thought through survey. I started it but clicked off the page when it asked a pile of consecutive questions about manx produce when I had already indicated that I didn't buy any..sorry, I don't.

 

I don't buy local bread - too expensive

I don't buy local meat - too expensive

I don't buy local fruit - too expensive

Titanic deckchairs come to mind.   How many surveys like this have they done over the years?   Fact is that proper local food costs more to produce and sell to a small customer base, so costs more

I've done it. You have to ask yourself what is it that they really want to know when filling these things in.   I think that the point of the survey is to get enough people to say they want o speci

so you think the proximity of Sellafield means none of the vegetables grown here are healthy, so you'll buy imported stuff... but.... you live here....?

As for Sellafield, we don't get the prevailing wind from there. More of a problem for those east of it.

 

Errrm.... Didn't we, as well as those in Cumbria, suffer a lot of fall out from Chernobyl? And isn't that to our East?

 

I get an awful lot of rain beating against my East facing windows at times, and it isn't a West wind that chucks spray across the road at Summerland.

 

 

One of us does not understand this. I suppose if you spin the globe enough, we are to the east of everywhere.

But the prevailing wing is very much from the West or South West - it only rarely blows from the East.

It just seems so badly designed. What is Manx bread? Is it Ramsey bakery made with imported flour, Tesco baked in store with imported flour. Does Noa Bakehouse use Manx flour?

 

 

Ramsey Bakery flour - imported from Laxey.

 

Tesco probably finishing part baked bread brought over. Some of this supermarket stuff takes months from start to end of bake.

Tsk. Not quite the same is it? Chernobyl radioactive waste was expelled explosively into the upper atmosphere where it spread fallout over an extremely wide area of Europe transcending the prevailing winds at a lower level. As far as I am aware, there has not been a similar incident at Sellafield recently. Now if there was, that would be a different matter.
