How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families? Even if you think you've heard it all, the facts about our nation's food industry will surprise you. The film exposes the mechanized underbelly that the U.S. food industry has been hiding from the American consumer. With the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA, we have a plethora of questionable blessings and certain plights including insecticide-resistant soybean seeds and new strains of e. coli.

The handful of corporations that control our food supply often put profit ahead of everything, endangering the livelihood of the American farmer, and the wellbeing of workers, consumers, and our environment. Featuring interviews with Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma) along with forward thinking entrepreneurs, Food, Inc. reveals surprising truths about what we eat, how it's produced, and
where we as a nation are headed. [violence]
