Sir: Why does nearly every individual item of supermarket fruit nowadays seem to bear irritating and pointless sticky labels denoting country of origin, etc? It must surely harm the skin, and I have found that it does nothing for the digestive process if eaten inadvertently. Is it marketing madness, or are there shadier reasons behind this ridiculous practice?

Yours faithfully,
