I have a big problem with the current fashion for the love-in with the words “sustainability” and “local”, both of which seem to be used for just about every food and means of producing foods, including GM crops. Actually, it’s not so much a problem as outright contempt. Both have become soft options, fluffy, feel-good, vague, all embracing, tick-all-boxes terms that enable everyone to turn a blind eye to any of the downsides to whatever is being described as local or sustainable.
