I’ve recently become more and more interested in watching documentaries (and by that I mean, finding more and more ways to procrastinate) so I’ve turned to Netflix and am slowly making my way through everything they’ve got on here. And voila – Food, Inc.
Food, Inc. is about how your food is made and how it makes it onto the supermarket shelves and then into your meals. The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than it has in the last 10,000. This is due to the rise of genetically modified crops and numerous other scientific discoveries that have led to the easy mass-production of food. In America, only a handful of companies control the food system and Food, Inc. reveals just how much power these corporations have and how they exert their power over the American consumer.
