One way of describing globalization is "the spread of economic, social and cultural ideas which are spread across the world and is growing uniformity between places which result from this spread".1 A more simple explanation can be taken from the dictionary which states "growth to a global or worldwide spread".2 Globalisation has been around since the beginning of human time; humans began to move around for better food and safety. ...read more.

We thought this would be more interesting to see exactly how many products came from what country; however we still classed them under the three categories, EU and non-EU and Scandinavia. To find the different amounts of meat in the different areas we counted the different types of meat and then classified it from where it is originated since different cultures are not to eat certain meats for religious reasons. Also we had to keep in mind the statistics of departures from Stockholm and where their biggest destination is. All our findings were noted as well as any abnormalities which will be discussed in the analysis of our results. Data presentation and processing: The results are in forms of different types of graphs, each of which show the relationship between each Coop store in the three different areas. It should be taken into consideration that some of there stores could have had more amounts of products due to the timre of day which we visited at, or people may have already bought the goods which are obviously not added to our results.

Conclusion

category to contain, however we discussed this with the group and came up with a certain system to avoid as much inaccuracy as possible. Secondly there were many products that did not specify where it was being produced; due to the fact that they were either transnational corporations or it just stated that it was made from inside the EU, these products were ignored. Lastly supermarkets differ in sizes and demand depending on the community in which it has to support. This brought abnormalities in our results especially for Kista since it was a much larger supermarket. To improve this experiment we would need to visit more supermarkets in each area and not only depend on Coop Konsum supermarkets since this is a store which sells ecological goods making it more expensive. Also each store had the same products however in different quantities; therefore our hypothesis would have made a stronger point if we focused on local stores of the three chosen districts. Despite all of the errors that raised inaccuracies, the result clearly state that areas with a high immigrant population does impact the amount of foreign goods, however areas with a low population of immigrants have a certain balance, eating a lot of their own familiar goods as well as exotic ones as well as the fairly even immigrant populated areas. The reasons behind this are due to immigration and tourism, where the immigrants want their own goods and the Swedish populations wants the exotic foods from where they have travelled. Our second hypothesis was proven to be correct due to the fact that Kista is highly populated by a Muslim community; lamb would be the dominant meat whereas in �stermalm pork would take up the greater amount of the meat section. ...read more.
