I know that, Besoeker, and there are always going to be exceptions to every rule. Sugar cane doesn't worry me - but, obviously, bananas, citrus fruits, mangoes etc., come from elsewhere but, even when buying them, I am choosy about the country of origin.
I stand by my original statement that I would not buy garlic from China for two reasons:-
1) I can buy perfect good local grown garlic.
2) As was pointed out in another response - the growing conditions are totally unacceptable.
