    on 1. small scale vegetable/fruit farmers in the US. we SAY we want "local healthy food", but these guys can't compete with Peruvian plantations that pay workers 30 cents a day.and the WalMarts of the world will import from them instead of the local farmer 10 miles away since it's still cheaper.
