Food, Inc. lifts the veil on our country's food industry, exposing how our country's food supply is now managed by a handful of corporations that commonly put earnings ahead of customer wellness, the
source of income of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. Food, Inc. discloses surprising and commonly stunning truths about what we eat, how it's produced and who we have become as a nation.For most Americans
, the perfect meal is quick, inexpensive, and tasty. Food, Inc. examines the expenses of putting value and benefit over nutrition and environmental impact. Director Robert Kenner checks out the subject from all angles, speaking to authors, advocates, farmers, and CEOs, like co-producer Eric Schlosser(Fast Food Nation), MichaelPollan(The Omnivore's Dilemma), Gary Hirschberg(Stonyfield Farms), and Barbara Kowalcyk, who's been lobbying for more rigorous requirements given that E. coli asserted the life of her two-year-old son. The filmmaker takes his cam into slaughterhouses and factory farms where chickens grow too quick to stroll properly, cows eat feed pumped with hazardous chemicals, and illegal immigrants run the risk of life and limb to bring these products to market at an affordable expense. If eco-docs tends to preach to the converted, Kenner provides his findings in such an engaging fashion that Food, Inc. may well reach the very audiences who could gain from it the most: harried workers who do not have the time or earnings to check out every book and eat non-genetically modified produce every day. Though he covers a few of the exact same ground as Super-Size Me and King Corn, Food Inc. provides a more comprehensive picture of the problem, and if Kenner takes a naturallyhard position on particular political leaders and corporations, he's simply as fast to praise those who are trying to be liable-- even Wal-Mart, which now brings organic products. That development may have more to do with economics than compassion, but the customer still advantages, and every bit counts.-- Kathleen C. Fennessy
