Food, Inc., the future of food, and waste = food

There is only one thing to say about the documentary Food, Inc. Watch the trailer, see the film, and then decide for yourself what you think about the food you eat, how food is farmed, how livestock becomes the meat you eat, and the future of our food.

Thanks to award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner, food advocates and investigative journalists Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, and Michael Pollan, author of “Omnivore’s Dilemma,” and socially concerned farming entrepreneurs such as Stonyfield Farm’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms‘ Joel Salatin, we have an up-to-date look at the food industry that is feeding us all and how it is regulated.

For further information, and especially if you are organically conscious or gastronomically ambitious, watch the documentary The Future of Food either on Google Video or YouTube or, buy the film.

You might also be interested in a documentary that was aired on French television in March 2008, called “Controlling Our Food.”

If you are still hungry for more, watch “Waste = Food,” a documentary that will change the way you think about production and consumption.

It’s worth a google search to learn about our leading agricultural companies to become aware of the stages our food undergoes from production to processing to product.

You can find out more and get other ideas about food prices, food crisis, and other food issues in a collection of articles on
