Food Provenance

James Pearn reports on Google Plus, accompanied by a nice photo of the packaging:

This salmon I bought today has a tracking code that you can type into followfish.de and it’ll tell you exactly where the fish was caught and what route it took to the supermarket. In this case the salmon F101335 was cultured in the fjords near Kirkenes on the north coast of Norway before being transported via Sweden to Buchholt in Germany. Pretty cool. I think all foods should have this.

I’m +1 on that one.

The US FDA is looking into the matter. See: http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodSafety/FSMA/ucm270851.htm
