Product Description

Amazon.ca

For most Americans, the ideal meal is fast, cheap, and tasty. Food, Inc. examines the costs of putting value and convenience over nutrition and environmental impact. Director Robert Kenner explores the subject from all angles, talking to authors, advocates, farmers, and CEOs, like co-producer Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma), Gary Hirschberg (Stonyfield Farms), and Barbara Kowalcyk, who's been lobbying for more rigorous standards since E. coli claimed the life of her two-year-old son. The filmmaker takes his camera into slaughterhouses and factory farms where chickens grow too fast to walk properly, cows eat feed pumped with toxic chemicals, and illegal immigrants risk life and limb to bring these products to market at an affordable cost. If eco-docs tends to preach to the converted, Kenner presents his findings in such an engaging fashion that Food, Inc. may well reach the very viewers who could benefit from it the most: harried workers who don't have the time or income to read every book and eat non-genetically modified produce every day. Though he covers some of the same ground as Super-Size Me and King Korn, Food Inc. presents a broader picture of the problem, and if Kenner takes an understandably tough stance on particular politicians and corporations, he's just as quick to praise those who are trying to be responsible--even Wal-Mart, which now carries organic products. That development may have more to do with economics than empathy, but the consumer still benefits, and every little bit counts. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see!!! Nov. 16 2009
By Mira
Format:DVD
This video is a definite must see. It will really help you to understand where your food comes from & how no care is given to the end result to the consumer. It shows how corporations are all about growing/harvesting/processing as much as they can in the quickest possible way & they do not seem to care who is hurt along the way. This creates nutritionally devoid foods which cause illnesses. Please take the time to watch & share this film. It will encourage you to make healthier changes to your life. For an even more shocking look at where your food comes from, watch Earthlings. Wow!! I will be eating organic, vegan and raw as much as I can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food politics for grown-ups Dec 6 2009
Format:DVD
Finally - this is what I've been waiting for.
If you've read "Fast Food Nation" and "Omnivore's Dilemma" and "The Way We Eat" (Peter Singer) and have been waiting for a film equivalent of these books, Food Inc is the one.
Food Inc is a very comprehensive overview of how control of the food industry has come under the control of a handful of supersized companies, and why these companies successfully change government legislation so that what gets protected is industry profit, NOT public health and food safety.
This film is good investigative journalism, and covers this ground thoughtfully and intellectually. There are some nasty looks at factory farming practices (which are sickening and which should make you go veggie), but it is very much NOT a PETA video (i.e. basically a one-sided rant).

When this movie finishes you will have no doubt that something is fundamentally wrong with the North American food industry, and you'll feel compelled to start making changes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Food Inc is a "must see documentary" March 2 2010
Format:Blu-ray
I have seen The Corporations, and Michael Moore documentaries, but Food Inc. tells us the truth about where our food comes from. It takes us through the super market and tells us how a half a dozen conglomerates produce and control literally everything on the shelves. We think we have choice - but we really don't. This makes it clear that knowledge is power and we as consumers VOTE on how animals are treated, how agriculture is produced every time we shop. This is a must see film.

5.0 out of 5 stars An "inconvenient truth" on food! March 2 2010
Format:DVD
If you are truly concerned about our planet and abolishing extreme cruelty to farm animals, you must see this!
Industrial farming, bullying of small farmers, Political palm greasing.......it's all here. This will open your eyes as to the dangers not only to you, the consumer, but also to our planet of eating what is now tainted meats, chicken and fish.
Make smart, informed choices as to what is on YOUR dinner table and in your children by being aware!
This is truly a MUST SEE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Food Inc...scary stuff! Aug. 6 2011
By Janice
Format:DVD
This movie certainly makes one think...my next trip to our local grocer was enlightening.
In particular, farmers legallly unable to use their own seeds..."they who own the seeds, own the food" - truth really is stranger than fiction...
Scary stuff - a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corporate food companies need to smarten up. Nov. 10 2009
Format:DVD
This documentary was filmed very well. Everyone needs to see this. The way people treat animals and nature is appauling. The only way we can change the way things are done is by making the right choice. Stop buying the cheap corporate meat. Ask questions to make sure what you are buying is good quality. It may cost a buck more but it IS worth it. Buy organic and ethically raised meat. Its simple, if we the consumer buy smartly then the corporate food companies will be forced to change their ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want to know the truth??? June 21 2010
Format:DVD
If you want to know the unvarnished truth about factory farms, the fast food burgers you eat, and the processed foods that you buy at the grocery store, then watch the Food, Inc. dvd. You'll never think the same about food after seeing this, and, in addition, all the food recalls will make a lot of sense. My husband and I were not disappointed in this dvd, and we highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food Inc. is just simply awesome!! Aug. 28 2010
Format:DVD
This documentary is great. Everyone should watch it. It will definitly give you the right situation on the food industry. But the great thing about this film is that it provides solutions for you eating better and that is Organic Food. Organic food as only quality ingredients that are not armful for your health.

If you want to make you a gift...make it this one!
