If you’re looking for a gummy bear or some fresh fruit and veggies, you may want to look up some gourmet grocery stores.
But a new report says many of the gourmet snack options available are made with ingredients that contain animal products.
That’s because of the way grocery stores are regulated, and the types of foods they serve.
According to the report, some of the most popular options are:Horse meat, eggs, meat and fish, pork, chicken, lamb, beef, veal, pork chops, veggie burgers, veg salad, and other meats.
The report said the number of gourmet brands sold in Canada has been increasing.
“For example, in 2012, there were approximately 50 brand names for gourmet products in Canada,” the report says.
The researchers compared the prices of these products to the cost of production, the total food production costs of the brand, and how much it would cost to make them.
The study also examined the cost and distribution of products in supermarkets.
“These products are often available at the lower end of the cost spectrum compared to the high-end of the market,” the researchers write.
“The average retail price of these items is between $0.19 and $0,30 per serving.”
This is quite an extreme cost for these products,” said Dr. Peter Smith, a professor of food science at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont.”
In the same year that a person can purchase a gouda, a goulash or a bagel, their cost of purchasing these items could be between $1 and $2 a serving,” Smith told CBC News.
In the report’s findings, the report noted that grocery store food suppliers were not required to list the ingredients of products.”
They can put up an advertisement with a list of ingredients, but it’s a lot more difficult for a consumer to understand what they’re purchasing,” Smith said.
The food industry group Fairtrade Canada called the study “deeply concerning” and said it highlighted the need for consumers to understand the difference between gourmet and traditional food.”
If we’re going to have a healthy and sustainable food supply, we have to be aware of the differences between what we’re buying and what we are buying from the supermarket,” Fairtrade’s director of food, nutrition and sustainability, Rachelle Foschi, told CBC Radio’s The House.
The group has called for a comprehensive review of the food sector to address how grocery stores and food manufacturers are regulated.
