That's the approximate number of products in a big-ass supermarket these days.
(Tesco Extra, I'm looking at you..)
WHO NEEDS 30,000 products, for Christ's sake?!
If we consider that around 75% of this figure are the 'food' items (used in the loosest sense) that makes for a hell of of lot of junk food.
(Try naming 20,000+ actual foods without using a brand name..)
Wouldn't we all be a little better off - in a financial, health, climate & energy sense - if we just got rid of this stuff..?
The only thing that these products really 'feeding' is the wealth of massive corporations. It solves money hunger, not food hunger.
