Crazy food arrangements

Here Treehugger finds some really backwards food shipping methods.

“Cod caught off Norway is shipped to China to be turned into filets, then shipped back to Norway for sale.
Argentine lemons fill supermarket shelves on the Citrus Coast of Spain, as local lemons rot on the ground.
Half of Europe’s peas are grown and packaged in Kenya.”

I guess there is still a lot of organisation to do to sort out some common practises that would help save the environment.

The above examples aren’t a surprise, of course, ‘going green’ nearly always means to undo or change/optimise our old ways.
