Today I have a dilema.
I try to support the British famers as much as possible buying British produced goods. If not my next tick box is Fairtrade.
I had been getting my granulated sugar from the Co-op when near there as they sell Silver Spoon which is made from British sugar beet.
I however also try and support my doorstep milkman as the convenience and not having to use my car usually outweighs the price difference.
Now to my dilema.
The milkman sells sugar which is the same price as Co-op , but it is I am told (after ringing Whitworths) only half British sugar beet, and half imported sugar cane. The sugar cane is not Fairtrade. Both come in recyclable paper bags.
Should I stick with buying British and bulk buy to equal out the petrol usage? or
Should I buy from the milkman knowing it doesn't tick all the boxes, but helps keep his delivery round going?
Dave and the boys have said it is up to me as I do the shopping, big help there!!
