Food Inc DVD - Factory Farming & Your Food

Winner at the 2010 Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards
Best Documentary Feature

Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on the food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the consumer with the consent of government regulatory agencies: USDA and FDA.

The food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the 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 with that 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 truth, about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.

Its a must see, to understand who is changing the way we eat food from our supermarkets. Food for thought.
