Impressively-referenced polemic on what's wrong with our food industry, by Hird, policy director of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming. She wields statistic after statistic in a persuasive flow of argument which draws in producers, marketers and distributors as well as the hidden players in the food game, from the biotechnology industry to politicians, via fast food outlets, Eurocrats, school catering, freight transport and transnational food giants. Increasing malnutrition in the developing world coexists with epidemic diet-related diseases in the over-fed west; gross wastage of both public money and healthy fresh food continues alongside escalating food scares. There is little to reassure fearful consumers, but many suggestions for productive courses of action. (Kirkus UK)
This text attempts to lift the lid on the food industry. It is a topical and politically charged examination of an adulterated food supply chain and the governmental and European Community policies that maintain the status quo.
