‘Food, Inc.’ is a documentary that came out in 2008. It is a famous film that details how America’s corporate-controlled food industry is bullying local farmers and consumers.
“We have never had food industries this powerful in history,” the film says. The documentary goes all over the United States to unveil how monopolies in the food industry is hurting animals, killing children, taking farmer’s jobs away and creating nutritionally-empty food.
The production of food nowadays has drastically changed since several thousand years ago. The global food production business depends largely on a handful of multinational corporations. Large quantities of food is produced at low cost, resulting in enormous profits. The health and safety of the food, farm animals, farm workers and consumers is largely overlooked by the government, resulting in a global food crisis with lack of biodiversity.
Filmed stylishly, the documentary is eloquently narrated and is very motivational in encouraging viewers to join in “changing the system”. The is one of the best documentaries that I have viewed and is an important one that will continue to affect consumers over the years.
