Iycee Charles de Gaulle Summary I organic celery and Canada don’t have

I organic celery and Canada don’t have

            I have gone through
some geography background of fifteen specific products from under three
different categories by visiting my local food basics. My first category is
fruit and vegetable and I do have five products under this category such as
apple, organic celery, raspberry, blueberry and strawberry. Aside from apple,
all four products were imported from the countries located south of Canada. As
you can see from the field data collection table, organic celery came from San
Juan Bautista, California, USA, raspberry and strawberry came from Mexico and
blueberry came from Chile. It’s because the average weather condition in those
countries are 15’C-30’C which is required temperature to grow or plant
strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and organic celery and Canada don’t have that
type of right now but opposite. Since these products are perishable, light
weight, small size and highly demanded all year long, they are usually exported
by air from their countries. Last and least, the apples I saw at my local
grocery store are from Toronto.  Although
apple is popular fruit during fall harvest season like other four products,
apple can be stored for long with modern technology and science, so we can
enjoy them during winter.

            Secondly, I have canola oil,
vegetable oil, herb and parmesan crust, bread crumb and white vinegar under
cooking oils and vinegar. Aside from bread crumb, all other four products are
locally produced. We get all these ingredients locally and they can be stored
for a long time which give us a chance to produce them locally and directly
distribute them to the local grocery stores. I think another reason is because
we want to use our modern technology and science, help employments by giving
unemployed people the chance to work at those factories and the weather
condition does not play a role here. Moreover, it is also cheaper to produce
them locally than importing from other counties because we save transportation
and importing fees. For bread crumb, it’s imported from USA. For example,
American Breadcrumb Company, the biggest bread crumb company, located in USA,
has been producing and selling breadcrumb way before Canadian people started
using the bread crumb. As a result, we still don’t have the bread crumb factory
locally and we end up importing from USA by road (rail, car) because it is not
as perishable as fruits and weight heavier than fruits.

            Thirdly, I have Strawberry with
raspberry & plum Jam, spread cheese, peanut butter, Artichoke Heart in Can
and tomato pasta sauce in can under jarred and canned preserves, vegetable and
sauces. I have artichoke heart in can that came from Spain. Spanish people love
artichoke and put it in many recipes. As there are more and more people
immigrated to Canada, Spain think it’s smart to export artichoke products to Canada;
artichoke heart in can is one of those products. Artichoke heart in can is
imported by air or ship depending on the product company because the product
itself is light weight, long-last and not very perishable. Four all other four,
they are locally produced. We may have to get some of the ingredients from
different part of the country; however, we end up producing them locally. As I
mentioned above, producing strawberry with raspberry & plum Jam, spread
cheese, peanut butter and tomato pasta sauce in can in local factories help
Canada government a bit by resulting less unemployed people because unemployed
people can now work at those factories. Moreover, we also want young people
from local to show their skills of modern technology and science in producing
these products.









            It is January and very cold. Yes,
there is one product from my fifteen-chosen product locally grown. One product
that is grown locally and available now is apple. Apple is popular during fall
harvest season like all other fruits. But apples can be stored for long and
stay as fresh as before with modern technology and science. There would be some
huge changes in the availability of products in my local store if imported
foods were not available. For example, Canada is known to have very cold
weather during winter and opposite during summer. Unlike other south American
and southern part of North America countries, Canada do not have hot weather
all year long resulting as not being able to grow many plants and fruits
whenever we want to. Therefore, the biggest change would be availability of the
plant and fruit. We would only have very selected number of plants and fruits
that are able to be grown Canada cold weather or stored for long.
