For the purpose of this blog post, the web has provided me with more knowledge on the subjects than I had known before. They both are titles that I had assumed the standard without actually knowing what it means – in exact detail as to standards.
So before the adoption and implementation of uniform standards, any company could claim to be ‘organic’ by their standard which might differ from another – and if their standard differed from mine as a consumer, that was just a matter lost in translation.
When I saw this sign in the English Market earlier today, I thought that there were two possibilities.
Maybe the chocolate is not ethnically sourced but there was a desire to get aboard the ‘ethically sourced bandwagon’ and so a deliberate decision was made to use the word ‘ethically’ rather than ‘ethnically’. Many will not spot the odd word. Most of those who do will assume a typo.
But having read of lack of standardisation regarding ‘ethically sourced’, I do not think it is a deliberate typo – just a normal typo.
