Sponsored: How local is "local" food?
QUESTION: When Ingles talks about offering “local” food what do you mean by that? Is there a certain area or geographic distance?
ANSWER: There is no legal definition for the word “local” so many retailers set a definition on their own. At Ingles all of our stores are within 250 miles of our Distribution Center in Black Mountain, NC so this is our first tier of our “local” region.
