Essays on Food Inc
Food Inc. is a 2008 documentary film that explores the industrial production of food in the United States and how it affects people’s health, animals, and the environment. The movie was directed by Robert Kenner and co-produced by Participant Media and Magnolia Pictures. The documentary highlights some of the major issues with industrialized agriculture, including limited access to healthy food options for many Americans; unhealthy working conditions for workers in slaughterhouses; animal cruelty; environmental pollution caused by factory farms; unsanitary processing plants; corporate control over food production and distribution; economic exploitation of farmers who are not able to compete with government subsidized agribusinesses.
