new ways to know where your food comes from


Even if you’re not a committed locavore, it’s downright interesting to learn how far food traveled to your grocery store. Springwise, my go-to source for cool discoveries, recently covered two new food tracking technologies. One is Chip Tracker, Frito-Lay’s app that lets you see where your chips originated. Another is HarvestMark, a new system that lets you track produce. Kroger stores (they own QFC in the West) have already partnered with the service. Of course, knowing where your food comes from doesn’t mean it’s local. Would you be more likely to buy if it was? — Mary T.
