Export Quality

Is it just me – or is there something slightly odd about advertising export quality on a food product sold locally (like there should be any difference between domestic and export quality in the first place)?

I like these small salad packs; they come in classic, Japanese, ranch, Caesar, and a few other varieties – along with dressing and extra bits (croutons, bacon bits or poppy seeds etc.).

But the export quality label has always made me think – what exactly does this mean? Does it mean – don’t buy those contaminated domestic quality salads that the locals have to eat, when you can get the good stuff, the safer love health stuff that the rest of the world eats? Hmmm….
