From the Back Cover
Our current food system is fundamentally broken. The production and distribution of food is now largely controlled by a small cartel of transnational corporations, driven only by profit. "Big Food" corporations compete with arms, oil and pharmaceuticals as amongst some of the most unethical and rapacious organisations on the planet. The industry reels from constant food safety and adulteration scandals, the nutritional quality of our food is in freefall and diet-related illness in the West is epidemic. No-one is taking responsibility.
As the quality of our food declines, so also does the agricultural environment. Land degradation, agrochemical contamination and GM technology usage threatens the very future of food production on more than 40% of global farmland. We now export our environmental vandalism to every continent, causing the wholesale destruction of rainforests to make way for more soya for more European beef and palm oil for more junk food. After all this, even with hundreds of millions starving, the rich world dumps a third of its food in the bin, untouched!
But there are some hopeful signs that the consumer has finally had enough of Big Food. There is now something of an ethical and real food renaissance taking place, with very rapid growth in sales of organic, local and fairtrade products. Whether you're becoming a vegetarian, buying organic and local, lobbying against GM, forming a food cooperative, choosing fairtrade, cooking "real food" again, growing your own or just refusing to buy bottled water, when it comes to ethical eating, everyone can do something. The time really has come to take control of our food again!
