Director: Robert Kenner
"Does for the supermarket what Jaws did for the beach." - Variety
Robert Kenner unravels the spinning of a pastoral lie, where agrarian fantasies presented on product packaging, like docile cows and green meadows, are nothing more than that - fantasies. According to Food, Inc., the average American supermarket now stocks 47,000 products, all of which are no longer seasonally dependent and miraculously stay fresh.
Featuring interviews with experts and forward-thinking entrepreneurs, this film dishes up surprising - and shocking - truths about what we eat, how it's produced, what we've become and where we're going from here.
“The 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.” - Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation
