A Word Without Meaning

Record #:
The word “local” has become a meaningless word in the restaurant business in Charlotte. Many restaurants who only get a few of their ingredients from local farms claim the word to justify price increases. This practice has forced restaurants who only use local ingredients to change the way they express it, by saying “farm to table,” “sourced locally from North Carolina,” “farm-driven,” and other phrases to ensure customers know what they are purchasing.
