Food Miles - Kenya

 

Kenya’s rural economy has grown significantly since supplying air freighted fresh vegetables from small-holder fields to consumers in the West.

Whilst the food mile debate gains more credibility in the UK, this film highlights how it is the local Kenyan farmer who is suffering.
