Exposing our nation’s food industry

Exposing the highly mechanized food industry, that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA

The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10,000. But the image that’s used to sell the food, it is still the imagery of agrarian America.

food-industryYou go into the supermarket and you see pictures of farmers, the picket fence, the silo, the ’30s farmhouse and the green grass. It’s the spinning of this pastoral fantasy. The modern American supermarket has on average 47,000 products. There are no seasons in the American supermarket.

Now there are tomatoes all year round, grown halfway around the world, picked when it was green, and ripened with ethylene gas. Although it looks like a tomato, it’s kind of a notional tomato. I mean, it’s the idea of a tomato. In the meat aisle, there are no bones anymore.

There is this deliberate veil, this curtain, that’s dropped between us and where our food is coming from. The food industry doesn’t want you to know the truth about what you’re eating, because if you knew, you might not want to eat it.

If you follow the food chain back from those shrink-wrapped packages of meat, you find a very different reality.

The reality is a factory. It’s not a farm. It’s a factory.

That meat is being processed by huge multinational corporations that have very little to do with ranches and farmers. Now our food is coming from enormous assembly lines where the animals and the workers are being abused. And the food has become much more dangerous in ways that are being deliberately hidden from us.

You’ve got a small group of multinational corporations who control the entire food system. From seed to the supermarket, they’re gaining control of food industry. This isn’t just about what we’re eating. This is about what we’re allowed to say, what we’re allowed to know.

Is “cheap food” really cheap?

Is health a luxury that you can’t afford?

Is it possible that our Health Care Crisis is, in reality a Food Crisis?

Is our desire for “cheap food” taken advantage of by Big Businesses that are interested only in the “bottom line?”

Is “Big Business” protected by “Big Government Bureaucrats?”

What can you and I do about it?

The documentary presented in this article lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
