||Synopsis: The current method of raw food production is largely a response to the growth of the fast food industry since the 1950s. The production of food overall has more drastically changed since that time than the several thousand years prior. Controlled primarily by a handful of multinational corporations, the global food production business - with an emphasis on the business - has as its unwritten goals production of large quantities of food at low direct inputs (most often subsidized) resulting in enormous profits, which in turn results in greater control of the global supply of food sources within these few companies. Health and safety (of the food itself, of the animals produced themselves, of the workers on the assembly lines, and of the consumers actually eating the food) are often overlooked by the companies, and are often overlooked by government in an effort to provide cheap food regardless of these negative consequences. Many of the changes are based on advancements in science and ... Written by Huggo

Watch Food, Inc. - Alternative Versions.
It is said that if you like eating sausage, you better not see how it
is made. If you like eating meat, don't watch an animal being killed.
If you have your fill of fruits and vegetables daily, don't think about
the pesticides that coat them.
Our modern society has sanitized the presentation of food so that we
can blissfully ignore what we should be concerned with: where food
comes from, how it is raised, picked, handled, altered, transported and
sold. Instead our attention is focused only on the awesome number of
beautiful packages on market shelves, the unblemished fruits and
vegetables available year round. In our increasingly artificial world
appearance trumps taste, price trumps provenance, and industrialization
gives us a false sense of safety.
It is therefore opportune to have the release of "Food, Inc". After you
see it, you'll probably not shop for food in the same way. You may even
change the kinds of food you eat. Not enough to convince me to become a
vegetarian, but the ubiquitousness of corn and its derivatives, stated
multiple times in the film, has made scouring of package labels a
routine. The easy rule of not buying anything that contains more than
five ingredients more frequently obeyed.
The film contains material that has already been brought out by others,
for examples, (1) the problem of genetically modified seeds crossing
into properties that do not want them and (2) the appalling conditions
in which farm animals are kept. Some material is stressed too much, for
example, the whole issue surrounding the tragic death of a kid from a
very virulent form of E.coli and the attempts to establish regulations
that might prevent such deaths. Individual cases are worth mentioning,
but systemic and widespread issues are more compelling. The death of
one is no doubt a tragedy but the impairment of thousands is of greater
The issue of food regulation in general is a subject that I would have
liked to see more of. The adverse effect of more regulation (as per the
example above) can be too much regulation. The subject is briefly
broached by the "good farmer" (Joel Salatin) who kills his chickens in
the open. Ironically those chickens are likely to be more healthy and
tasty. Regulation may eliminate this practice. Regulation can therefore
have a negative impact on food culture. One of the best example of this
is preventing the importation into the US of many delicious young
unpasteurized cheese from Europe or even the marketing of such cheese
by US producers. How many get sick from those cheese compared to the
number of sick from peanut butter or spinach?
The film unwittingly projects a bit of naiveté in a couple of places.
The segment about an individual being sued by a food conglomerate and
essentially losing for lack of money is not news. This is a capitalist
system: more money, better lawyers, almost certain victory. Yet the
point is well taken that the food conglomerates are behaving in
thuggish ways and acting with the protection of a complicit government
(the best money can buy). But again, uncontrolled capitalism generates
monopolies and they will fight tooth and nail to retain control and
squash any semblance of competition. It's the logic of the beast. This
not limited to food. Since voting habits have brought the US to this
state of affairs, our only recourse as consumers is to eat bananas, and
only bananas, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's called the Chiquita
In any case, this is a must-see documentary. The director is to be
commended for having the courage of tackling this very important topic.
Don't forget to buy a five gallon basket of popcorn dripping with oleo
and a big soda with plenty of high fructose corn syrup before going
into the screening room. It may be the last time you do.
