02/05 Lezing Vera Dua + documentaire 'Food Inc'

Berichtdoor Eldar » 20 Apr 2011, 20:28


Alweer de voorlaatste activiteit van debat dit jaar! Dit keer komt Vera Dua, gewezen minister van landbouw en leefmilieu, ons een toelichting geven over haar ervaringen met de voedselindustrie in Vlaanderen en Europa. Zij zal ook de documentaire 'Food inc' inkaderen, die genomineerd werd voor een Academy Award. Deze documentaire volgt hoe voedsel op ons bord terecht komt en vooral: wat er op ons bord komt. Tot dan!

The current method of raw food production is largely a response to the growth of the fast food industry since the 1950s. The production of food overall has more drastically changed since that time than the several thousand years prior. Controlled primarily by a handful of multinational corporations, the global food production business - with an emphasis on the business - has as its unwritten goals production of large quantities of food at low direct inputs (most often subsidized) resulting in enormous profits, which in turn results in greater control of the global supply of food sources within these few companies. Health and safety (of the food itself, of the animals produced themselves, of the workers on the assembly lines, and of the consumers actually eating the food) are often overlooked by the companies, and are often overlooked by government in an effort to provide cheap food regardless of these negative consequences
