We’re now reading into The Secret Life of Groceries by Benjamin Lorr.
I have some really fun news; Benjamin agreed to a Numlock Book Club Q&A, where you all can send in questions you have for him through the comments or email, I’ll send them over to him and in the wrap-up thread a few will get answers direct from Lorr himself. If you’ve got any questions, do be sure to send them in!
This week, we read up through parts 2 and 3 of the book, all about the logistics of how your food gets to you, and then about the onerous, long journey from a food to a consumer packaged good. Here’s some questions to kick us off:
How familiar were you with the enormous warehouses that store fruits or vegetables for months on end?
What surprised you most about how grocery stores stocked their shelves? Did you know about all the payments changing hands between supplier and grocer?
What did you think of the Slawsa journey?
