From the fields of farmers onto the dining tables of consumers: fruits and vegetables have completed a long journey when they hit the shelves of local shops. After the harvest there are several steps of processing, which the food must run through. Some fruits and vegetables only need cleaning, sorting and packaging. Others get chopped, cored or peeled.
But it is not only about fruit and can. The longer the distance and the time before being purchased, the more important are food additives to preserve the delicious taste and appealing color and to extend shelf life. Hence perfect timing to process the fruits and vegetables at their peak is not enough.
