By favouring organic and seasonal food, you eat healthier whilst preserving the health of the planet. And, eating locally-produced foods significantly reduces transport-related CO2 emissions whist supporting the local economy.
In Paris, this conscious choice has become simple. For example, the label ‘Des produits d’ici, cuisinés ici’ (‘Locally-sourced products cooked onsite’) identifies restaurants that are supporters of slow food and short supply chains. Street food also has its own street cooking label: ‘Ici, la cuisine est dans la rue’ (‘Here, the cooking is in the street’)!
