Of course we would all love to be eating local, sustainable, and organic food. To do this all year, however, requires that you live in a sunny state or have deep pockets. It’s very nice then when Corporate America has its ear to the ground and understands that there are many good reasons to jump on the local bandwagon. According to this article in the NY Times, Walmart  (that’s right) is not just expanding their local food inventory, they are planning to have a sustainability index for each item. This way a customer can see how a farmer brings the avocado to market–from seed to shipment. Others will surely follow suit.
