Why the rise in pastry sales is nothing new
It’s not just about the cost of making these desserts, it’s also about the impact on the environment.
It has been estimated that if you put the ingredients in a bakery in India, it is estimated that they will take an additional 15-20 years to be processed and packaged.
The ingredients have to be made in a factory, which then gets shipped out to the market and is not done by hand.
And that’s when the pollution is released.
In fact, the environmental impact of these foods is worse than their raw material costs, according to a report from Greenpeace India.
As of January 2018, the country’s annual greenhouse gas emissions were 2,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per person.
This is about one-fifth of what we emit per person every day.
The problem is not only that the raw materials are not reused, but that the factories that make these ingredients are not properly inspected or monitored, according an report by Greenpeace India in September 2017.
It has been found that in India’s largest textile mill, where the production of textiles is estimated to be over a billion dollars per year, only six out of the 25 workers who have worked there have been certified by the authorities.
The country is also not doing enough to prevent pollution, the report said.
In the case of the pastry industry, there are only two ways to reduce the impact: through recycling, or by reducing waste.
“There is an urgent need for better policies to reduce waste in the industry, especially as it is one of the most important industries in the country,” the report says.
“The consumption of plastic is growing, with an estimated 40% increase in the last decade.”
“We need to ensure that this industry is treated as a sustainable source of income, and not a commodity.”
The Indian government, in the report, called for more transparency in the manufacturing of food, and also a ban on the use of plastic bags in the production process.
