In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nations food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our governments regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nations 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 wont 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 Omnivores Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eaters Manifesto) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfields Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat, how its produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
