Will the ash cloud turn us onto local food?

There’s an interesting article on the Guardian’s word of mouth blog today about how the consequences of the current volcanic ash cloud on our food supply might turn more people onto local food. I’m not sure it’s going to have such a dramatic effect, but one of the silver linings on the cloud – along with tonnes of carbon dioxide being saved and Chris Moyles being stranded abroad – is that it will at least show us how fragile our current global food system is, and perhaps make those in power take the localisation agenda a bit more seriously, who knows.
