Our Canadian way of life has changed dramatically over the last hundred years, and these changes are reflected in our food industry. Our population has grown and spread across much of the country. Farmers now supply a large variety of foods for global distribution. Changes in technology and transportation have made it possible for most of us to eat seasonal foods from international markets throughout the year.
As farming practices continue to change, you may be wondering about the impact of modern farming on our lives, and how it affects the food choices available in local supermarkets.
