Local Business, Local and National Policymakers
Greater local employment and lower food miles will result from more local processing of food. Local raw ingredients can have value added by being processed as close to market as possible. Companies of various sizes making local jams, cheeses, sauces, pickles, juices, oils, cured meats, smoked fish etc. should be encouraged. Local slaughter houses and abattoirs need to be re-established.
