Food and Transport
Origin Grown by the South Americans Discovered by Columbus Introduced to Europe and spread due to its high content of Vitamins and nutritious values. Used to cure scurvy
Why imported Pineapple can not be cultivated in Europe due to the climate It was used for medicinal purposes
From who Belgium: Brazil, Ivory Coast, Costa Rica Poland: Brazil, Malaysia, Thailand Norway: Costa Rica, eastern and western Africa Uk: Ghana, Brazil, Hawaii and Costa Rica
Transport: By ship: large cargo vessels with cooled areas where the pineapples are stored. By plane: not used a lot because it costs lots of money By haulage: cooled areas
Origin In Pre-historic times it was discovered that when milk turns sour the white curd tastes good and keeps well Cheese is a fermented milk product when milk is coagulated Usually it is made from cow’s milk however there are many varieties
Why imported? Different countries make different cheese with a different taste So therefore imported to expand the cheese market. Most countries produce cheese locally so import is limited.
From who? Belgium: France, England, Germany, Italy, Greece, Switzerland Norway: Italy, Denmark, Greece Poland: France, England, Italy, Greece Uk: France, Italy, Greece, Norway
Similarities: Country’s specialties are imported to get the original and unique taste into most markets.
Transport Haulages: transported by cooled haulages By ship: With large cooled areas The cheese is covered with wax when transported to prevent extra mould or fungi growing.
Origin Discovered in 1650 First edible mushrooms discovered in 1707 Grew on melon horticultures of rotting melons
Why imported? Most mushrooms available to buy in Iceland, Germany and Belgium are cultivated in their own country. Other mushrooms are imported from different countries as we are unable to cultivate them. Reasons for importing include: the climate and wide variety of mushrooms.
Examples of different types of mushrooms: Shii TakeOyster mushroom
From who? Germany From Germany itself in Rechterfeld, by refrigerated trucks From France, by refrigerated trucks From The United Kingdom, by refrigerated containers on ship
Iceland From Iceland itself, in Fludir, by refrigerated trucks From The Netherlands, by flight From Poland, by flight Belgium From Belgium itself, in West Flandres and Limburg, by refrigerated trucks From The Netherlands, by refrigerated trucks From Poland, by refrigerated trucks
Why imported? Because we can’t cultivate all kind of fruits in our countries, for instance - Oranges - grapes - pineapple - bananas - …
From Who? Germany From Florida, by refrigerated containers on a ship From Brazil, by refrigerated containers on a ship From Germany itself, only apple juice Iceland From Austria, by ship From Italy, by ship From Germany, by ship From Denmark, by ship
Belgium From Florida, by refrigerated containers on a ship From Brazil, by refrigerated containers on a ship
Where? Salmon is a freshwater fish that is able to live in the sea as well. When it’s breeding time they swim up the river to drop their eggs. Salmons are only found North of the equator. They only lay their eggs in cold, fast- streaming water. Because nature can’t provide the salmon that is needed to supply the demand, so now salmons are bred in fish farms.
Why imported? We import salmon because there isn’t any salmon in Belgium and Hungary. Because our European climate is too warm. Our rivers are too polluted.
From Who? A big choice of salmon can be found in Norway, Scotland and Canada It is transported by ship to the harbour of Antwerp. Then it is moved by truck and haulage.
Why imported? Belgium, Hungary don’t import pigs or import only from their neighbours. Belgium and Hungary have always been agricultural countries and had their own livestock keeping. So European countries export pigs to Asia and other countries.
From who? From pig farms in West- Flanders. In West- Flanders there live more pigs than there live people. The main city in Hungary where pigs are bred is Pécs.
Why imported? In Belgium and Hungary we import mineral water because there are not enough natural springs to supply the demand for mineral water. We can’t purify unhealthy water because that’s too expensive.
From who? We have to import our water from regions near mountains or with lots of natural sources. Belgium imports mineral water from France and Hungary from Poland or Italy. The water is transported by truck to the local market and is mostly sold in glass or plastic bottles.
Conclusion We produce our basic food in our own countries or we import it from other countries of Europe Tropical food, or food we can’t cultivate ourselves, we import from non-European countries Each country has a complex import and export system to supply the demand within that country
