Bài mẫu Writing task 2 ngày 6/7/2019 - Local foods 1

In our highly globalized world, foods from other cities or other countries usually travel long distances before reaching customers. It is therefore argued that consuming locally-produced foods is more beneficial, both environmentally and economically. Despite certain drawbacks, I believe that the advantages of eating local foods would be more significant.

Cách viết thân bài

Local foods

On the one hand, the consumption of locally grown foods might have certain drawbacks. One of the primary demerits is the lack of diversity. Without access to exotic foods from far away, consumers are restrained to local produce which is often seasonal. In fact, given better living standards, many families can afford the extra costs of shipping and food preservation to try non-locally grown foods, which diversifies their diet and satisfies their appetite. Additionally, if local foods dominate the market, customers will fall victim to price inflation since local merchants would take advantage of this opportunity to increase prices.

On the other hand, eating locally produced foods could be more beneficial in environmental and economic terms. From an environmental point of view, by consuming local products, people can reduce food miles and therefore cut down on carbon footprint. This is because unlike foreign foods, local foods do not need to be refrigerated in containers or transported by air or ship before reaching customers, which thereby decreases global pollution from exhaust fumes. From an economic standpoint, when produce is purchased and consumed locally, the local economy will be boosted greatly. More income will be generated for those involved in food production, which, in turn, enhances their standards of living.
