In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s
food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that’s 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, insecticide-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) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like
Stonyfield Farms’ Gary Hirschberg and Polyface Farms’ Joe 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. – Foodincmovie.com
