Review of “Food Chain”

I have recently watched the documentary: Food Chains

The former is about farmworkers who are routinely abused and robbed of wages. The film exposes the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of the supermarket industry. Supermarkets earn $4 trillion globally and have tremendous power over the agricultural system. Over the past 3 decades they have drained revenue from their supply chain leaving farmworkers in poverty and forced to work under subhuman conditions. It is a moving documentary and a worthy follow up to the 1960 classic Harvest of Shame. Here is the trailer for “Food Chains.”

I encourage my readers to watch this moving film and, if possible, work for solutions to human degradation in the US and elsewhere.
