Food Inc came out in 2009 but still to this day is one of the best films about the business side of our food system. You will get an eye opening picture of how farms, Big Food, Big Ag, special interests groups, and our government actually work within our food system…and it is not in the best interest of the higher good of people, animal, or planet.
Food Inc. came out almost a decade ago and what is frightening is that not much in our food system has changed. In fact, some of the issues raised in Food Inc have gotten worse particularly the influence of special interest money on politics.
After watching Food Inc in 2010, I stopped eating chicken.
