How Do I Know That the Products I’m Getting are Really Locally and/or Ethically Sourced?
When it comes to self-certification for religious, cultural, and values-based classifications, things can get tricky because not everyone agrees on what these classifications mean. What one family would consider Kosher or Halal may not pass muster in another family. What one baker considers Locally Sourced, or Ethically Sourced may not meet another baker’s standard. One baker may consider honey a vegan ingredient while another would not. The best way to deal with these issues is to communicate directly with your Seller using the Cottage Nosh chat function. You can ask them directly for the information you need to make an informed choice on whether their standards agree with yours.
