Good Old Fashioned Fixes for Modern Fresh Food Problems
- By: Neil Tug
Eating fresh food and staying healthy seem to pre-occupy us more than ever today. The last hundred years have seen massive changes in the way our food is produced and the way we purchase it. From the 1950's onwards, 'Convenience' became the by-word for modern living, from 'labour' saving devices like the vacuum cleaner to tinned food and ready meals. Mind you, if you ever tried to manoeuvre a modern 'designer' vacuum round the house you may have been tempted to strangle its designer with one of his own power cords. As for convenience food, while saving time you may also find that this sort of meal will also save on nutrients and taste. However, with busy lives it can be difficult to find the time to shop well and many of us are guilty of returning to the overcrowded aisles of the supermarkets for those quick and easy choices!
Although there is nothing wrong with supermarkets, not many people would admit to enjoying shopping in them. Especially if you are responsible for the 'big shop' you are quite justified in believing they are designed as a sort of aversion therapy for shopaholics. Supermarkets are also often accused of 'killing' our town centres and small local businesses. These small businesses along with fresh produce suppliers and growers have, however, been fighting back in the last few years. The increasing consumer desire for fresh food and quality produce has driven a growth in demand for locally produced fresh produce. Not many of us have the time to pop down to our nearest farm shop or even spend time calling in at the butchers, the bakers or the candlestick makers! Fresh food delivery services are now rising to meet the challenge that we as consumers have laid down.

The original dairy products delivery service is of course your humble milkman. These days, to save themselves from extinction, the milkmen and women of the UK have branched out a little. They now provide a comprehensive fresh food delivery service which in some cases includes a vast range of products. Many will stock over 200 items, including household essentials and fresh fruit & vegetables, alongside the traditional range of dairy products. The supermarkets can of course supply this type of product for delivery, but your local dairy has two great advantages. There is rarely a delivery charge for fresh food delivery through your trusty milkman. As they have established rounds they can include your bag of goodies without any delivery charges, and thanks to the power of the internet you can order online as late as nine pm.
