Where are those tomatoes from?

(Friday, Jan. 17, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- There’s only two things that money can’t buy: True love and home-grown tomatoes! And so we pause ask, from where do the tomatoes our money will buy come and who is growing them for us?

This Saturday at 9AM Pacific, the Food Chain with Michael Olson hosts York University Professor Deborah Barndt for a conversation about her studies of the “Tomato Trail.”

(Listen here: http://www.metrofarm.com/index.asp?c=40088 )

Topics will include the tomato plantations of Mexico; the workers who grow, process, pack, ship, warehouse, display and sell the tomatoes; and the impact globalization is having on the food chain.

Listeners are invited to call the live program on KFRM, KSCO, KOMY, KGOE or KMPH with questions and comments at 800-624-2665.
