Remote Community Food Supply Advisory Service
live in one of the 1,223 discrete Aboriginal communities in Australia? If
so, are you happy with your food supply?
living in remote areas of Australia - Aboriginal people, teachers, and health
professionals - often have limited access to affordable healthy food. In
general, the supply of fresh fruit and vegetables are very
limited and overpriced. Consequently people are only able to
access and utilise one tenth of their fresh fruit and vegetable requirements.
Given that health-developing
and protective nutrients
in the form of
essential vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and other important
nutrients are, to a large extent, contained within these foods it's no wonder that people
living in remote areas, particularly those living in poverty,
suffer from nutrition related preventable health problems such as diabetes, heart disease,
kidney disease, lung disease and high blood pressure.
EthiCal Nutrition Services is the
only independent provider of comprehensive assessment of your community's food
supply and advise for improvement without negatively affecting the profitability
of your store. For more information contact Roy Price at EthiCal by email at
