Re: Learned Something New

John Savard,

We like bacon so much that apparently we've run out of room for pigs. So we've bought a lot of it from Denmark for years now.

Food markets are weird. For example the UK exports a lot of lamb to the rest of Europe and then imports loads from New Zealand to eat ourselves. Seems rather strange that we don't eat our own and let the Kiwi stuff go off to Europe - and save a bit of transport costs.
