You go to the supermarket regularly, whether that's once a month or whatever routine you have set up according to your comfort. But have you ever paused for a while and thought how your fruits and vegetables actually make it to those superstore shelves?
Many steps are taken before your fruits and vegetables actually reach you. The supermarket shelves are just a glimpse of the entire scene going backhand, it is just the final result. Even before the edibles are brought to the stores, their growth has certain processes involved such as the use of chemicals to ripen the fruits and vegetables. It is due to these chemicals that the taste of veggies and fruits you grow at home comes out to be different than the ones at superstores.
There are many fruits and vegetables here in the UK that are not being grown on land but are being exported from other countries. Therefore it is important to take into account the import processes as well. Additionally, there are some other tactics involved as well to prepare veggies and fruits for supermarket shelves. Look at the following infographic to learn more about all the processes in detail.
