Factory farming conditions and antibiotic-resistant pathogens emerging as a result of them pose an existential threat to humans in the form of zoonotic diseases. Why it’s time to produce and consume food more thoughtfully.
Fruits and vegetables in season by month: July
Tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, peaches and watermelons: these are only some of the delicious fruits and vegetables for July groceries shopping.
July is the month of tomatoes, which are at the peak of their flavour and freshness. Use them to make gazpacho, a fresh, flavourful, and delicious Andalusian soup made with raw tomatoes and other vegetables. With hot temperatures, there is nothing better than a fresh tzatziki, the delicious Greek starter made of yogurt and cucumber that is perfect to reintegrate the mineral salts you lose by sweating.

In an increasingly uncertain world, we need food production systems that can cope with dramatic climatic variations, provide nutritious diets, and build the resilience of communities and landscapes.
Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
