Every month we feature a fruit or vegetable that is in season, along with a fun fact or recipe idea....
What’s in season?
Local fruit and veg are picked fresh throughout the seasons, that is why they are packed with flavour and are more nutritious. Short travelling distances mean that carbon footprint is at a minimal. Buying local produce supports our farmers and preserves our rural landscape, and moreover the carbon footprint is tiny since they are not travelling from all over the globe. Eating local and seasonal couldn’t be yummier with these delicious recipes, posted each month so that you can try out these simple culinary delights.
From Apricots to Zucchini: the Agro Katina Report
The Agro Katina Report is the product of Friends of the Earth Malta’s research into the local vegetable and fruit supply chain and the agricultural sector in Malta. Friends of the Earth Malta strongly believes in shorter supply chains, as these have a positive impact on local farmers, strengthen local economies and small business, and bring the public closer to their food sources.
We hope that the report can contribute to a deeper appreciation of local produce and agriculture, and a stronger integration of agricultural policies with interlinked topics, such as water, biodiversity, natural habitats, health and better quality of life.
