The Road to Real Food


Author(s):
Abstract:
Roadblocks in the food supply chain prevent much of North Carolina’s agricultural products from being sold in the Triangle area. The Triangle area is better at providing local options than many places, but eating local food takes work on behalf of consumers and suppliers. The lack of infrastructure to help small and mid-sized producers get their food products to local markets is holding is preventing local food options from making it to consumers, but local farmers, agriculture support organizations, and the state government are working to make the process smoother. Examples of the progress are detailed.
