Feeding densely populated areas: According to one estimate , if all the agricultural land in New York state were devoted to feeding New York City’s population of 8 million 2 , there would be only enough food to feed half the city—with nothing left for the rest of the state. 3 One adult eats roughly one ton of food per year. Where there are a lot of people in one place, there may not be enough local farmland to support them all.

Feeding densely populated areas:

Out-of-season variety : In northern latitudes, most food production is suspended through the cold season. If people in those regions ate only local food, their options would be very limited unless they preserve fruits and vegetables to last the winter. Some households are doing just that, but it requires effort and planning. Otherwise, shipping food from Florida, California, Central and South America, and other southern locales can provide people with year-round variety and nutritional diversity over the winter months.

Allowing regions to focus on their strengths: Some regions are better at producing certain foods than others. Vermont, for example, has a short growing season, rolling hills, and rocky soil—less than ideal conditions for growing many crops but suitable for raising dairy cows. 4 From an economic standpoint, it makes sense for Vermont’s farmers to focus on the products they are best suited for. In fact, they produce far more milk and dairy products than are consumed within Vermont, 5 and export the surplus to other states. Other states, in turn, export to Vermont the foods they are best at producing.

Allowing regions to focus on their strengths:

Other reasons have to do with the nature of the food distribution industry (see below).

Food distributors

Food distributors provide a bridge between the people who produce food and those who sell it. They gather products from farmers and food processors, store them in warehouses, and then transport them to retail and wholesale buyers.

Large businesses like supermarkets, chain restaurants, and food service providers for schools, hospitals, and other institutions rely on distributors to help acquire the many foods and ingredients they need to operate. A supermarket, for example, does not have time to purchase from hundreds of different farmers and processors to stock their shelves. One farmer, meanwhile, rarely produces enough food to make it worthwhile for a large business to purchase directly from them. A distributor brings together goods from many different producers and processors so they can be sold in bulk.

Food distributors are also part of the reason foods are transported long distances. Larger, more competitive distributors may buy only from large farms that provide a steady supply of goods at the lowest prices—even if those farms are halfway across the globe. This competition for lower prices can drive smaller farmers out of business, while making regions more dependent on food from faraway places. For example, in 1870, all the apples eaten in Iowa were grown by Iowa farmers; by 1999, 85 percent were imported from outside the state.

Some smaller-scale farmers are getting around these problems by “cutting out the middleman” and selling directly to consumers (e.g., at farmers’ markets). Farmers get a larger share of the profit this way, and they can build personal relationships with consumers who want to know and trust where their food comes from.

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by stage of supply chain. What people eat generally matters more for climate change than how far food travels. Across the U.S. food supply chain, from farm to retail, transportation accounts for only an estimated 11 percent of GHG emissions. Most emissions are from producing food, particularly animal products. Research suggests that if Americans followed a plant-based diet one day per week, they could cut GHG emissions more than by following an entirely local diet.

In some cases, trading food with faraway places has advantages over eating local. According to one study, producing lamb and dairy products in New Zealand and shipping them to the United Kingdom used less energy, and produced fewer greenhouse gas emissions, than producing these foods in the U.K. This is mostly because the animals in New Zealand grazed on pasture year-round, whereas in the U.K. they were housed indoors and required feed.

For most of human history… perishable foods were by definition local.
