    This is very good news, i think. As healthy eating can become very costly. No one knows what it looked like once it been, chopped, grated, blended etc

    I'm not sure one should be entirely blaming the EU ..... the supermarkets may have a major (if not larger) part to play in it I suspect.

    I totally agree with you CC.

    Portugal is in the EU but in the supermarkets fruit and veg are not as perfect looking as in England. They are not of uniform size either. As all fruit and veg are sold by the kilo, you get all sorts of sizes and shapes of say peppers or cucumbers. So you buy what you want. In the markets you get local gardeners selling their produce and no EU regulations there.

    Good point, but it did apply to smaller greengrocers as well.
