"O saque normando"
The authenticity halo around organic and natural has begun to fade, and local foods and beverages are poised to surpass them as a symbol of trust and transparency. ... local is no longer merely a bridge between organic and natural; local now speaks to consumer desires for a food system with integrity.
With its connotations of community, economy and environmental stewardship, local offers compelling narratives that include small-scale production and closer, reciprocal relationships with food producers. These authentic stories have become a major part of the shopping, cooking and eating experience for consumers — a key aspect of the movement toward fresh, less processed food. Although some local products may carry prices that put them out of reach for many people, consumers in all segments are turning toward local to help them resolve their confusion and uncertainty surrounding organic certifications and the claims of the organic marketplace. People believe in the integrity of local producers and small farmers, seeing them as deeply invested in the quality of their products."
