We’d all like to know a little more about what we’re buying at the grocery store. How old is that vegetable? Where was it grown? How did it make its way to this shelf or bin? What kind of track record does the farmer have?
Not content to simply ponder these weighty issues, John Healy decided to do something about them.
“It all stemmed from the movie Food, Inc.,” said Healy, a May, 2009 graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga. “It’s a really great documentary about food production and how much we really know about what we eat.
“We were also looking at applications that are out there, and how they fell a little short as far as how much information you could gather yourself.”
