Food Inc. - Docu (Engl) (DE)

Food, Inc. - Interview with Director Robert Kenner (Engl)

Food, Inc. is a documentary that sets out to reveal to the viewer the current state of the American food industry and the shortcomings of mass produced food.
Food, Inc. reveals surprising-and often shocking truths-about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
Unfortunately, the film is very one-sided.In some cases, Food, Inc. misrepresents facts concerning the activities of major corporations such as Monsanto. The film makes it seem like Monsanto wants to keep farmers from acting like traditional farmers, but this isn't really the case. Both the farmer and the corporation are to blame for the change in the farming industry. The farmer chose to abandon the traditional farming techniques for the quick and easy crop (you pay more money and it grows super easy), while the corporation exploited the farmer to promote their particular plant monoculture for maximum profits leaving the American farm landscape with very little diversity and massive amounts of output (mainly of just corn and soy beans). The film ends with an plea to its viewers to choose to buy food outside of the conventional mass-produced food industry. For many, many people this will not be possible - cheap conventional food will still feed the majority of people - but for those of us who can make a choice, those of us who can afford to buy more expensive meats, produce, and groceries from independent growers who minimize suffering and reduce pesticide and chemical usage, we should choose to support these farmers and producers in order to ensure that in the future we will continue to have a choice. This is an interview with Director Robert Kenner about the film.

Behind the food we love—Secrets that giant food companies don't want you to know.

Americans have a longstanding love affair with food—the modern supermarket has, on average, 47,000 products. But do we really know what goes into making the products we so eagerly consume?
David Brancaccio talks with filmmaker Robert Kenner, the director of "Food, Inc.," which takes a hard look at the secretive and surprising journey food takes on the way from processing plants to our dinner tables. The two discuss why contemporary food processing secrets are so closely guarded, their impact on our health, and another surprising fact: how consumers are actually empowered to make a difference.

Part 1/8

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli — the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults. Food Inc.
