As urban Indians, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to the variety of food available to us in our neighbourhood supermarkets – be it fresh, processed, or packaged. The growing tendency to consume convenience foods or hire full-time cooks in our urban households is estranging us from our food.
Most of us do not consider the larger impact of our food choices, and urban food trends are such that the transport, processing, packaging and distribution of the food we eat consumes enormous amounts of energy and resources.
