I recently watched Food Inc. partly out of curiosity, partly out of my fascination with all things food and partly to see if I was on the right track with my move to home cooked meals from fresh ingredients and boy was it an eye opener. So many questions, so few answers…
This film, one would assume, has it’s facts straight, otherwise some of the monster food companies would be suing it out of existence. But it’s not just about the facts, the film is very well made and the way the facts are revealed is not designed to shock but to educate us.
After watching it I know I will be paying a lot more attention to where my fresh food comes from and how it’s produced, be it meat, poultry, fish or fruit and veg. We all need to be more aware of these things so that we can all make better choices for us and our families.
If you eat you need to see this film!
I would love to hear from Irish farmers and slaughterhouses about the conditions in their operations so as ever the comment form is open below.
