The demand for locally and seasonally produced food is trending in Luxembourg, a positive evolution.
As a small country, Luxembourg has the advantage that national food production can easily be grasped and monitored. This creates transparency and confidence in locally produced food.
With the geographically limited production, it is easier to trace the different infringements and implement the necessary safety procedures. Accordingly, there are very few food scandals in the Grand Duchy.
Local production also means short transport routes and thus contributes to a sustainable diet. Shopping locally, however, does not only mean conscientious shopping; locally sourced food is often also of better quality, as it does not need to travel long routes and therefore comes fresh to the shelves in shops. Thus, short routes, for example, have a positive impact on flavour and also on valuable constituents such as vitamins and minerals. In addition, less food gets spoiled on the way to the shelves. Accordingly, when you buy local products, you also do something to combat food waste.
