Food Inc trailer

The film Food Inc, made by Robert Kenner, is screening in the US, hope it goes worldwide. Looks like an amazing insight into the reality of massive industrial food supply chains. The reality of food production is kept very secret, in the US it is illegal to criticise food products and taking photographs of food processing plants may also be prohibited. The reality of how the products are made is increasingly at odds with whimsical marketing of a long gone farming landsape and culture. As for the food, the processed meat products are everywhere, and even vegetarians may have been perplexed by the 'notional tomato' with hardly any flavour.

The movie website has loads of info, I like the Hungry For Change part with the interactive school cafeteria.
