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.
