Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America


Manufacturer: The New Press

Product Information

"Foodopoly unveils the corrosive effects of agribusiness and food corporations on a healthy food system, making the compelling case that solving this crisis will require moving beyond local food movements to create a complete structural shift in the way food is produced.
"Blending history, reporting, and a deep understanding of American farming, Foodopoly shows how the corporate control of food production prevents farmers from raising healthy crops and limits the choices that people can make in the grocery store. Hauter shows how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft, and ConAgra. Along the way, she also takes a critical look at the genetic modification of food crops; the harsh conditions of cattle, hogs, and chickens in factory farms; and the environmental pollution that arises from confined feeding operations.
"Foodopoly challenges the pernicious pracitices of large corporations in the organic food industry and lays out a road map for an environmentally and economically sustainable food system. Written with a deep insight from one of America's leading food activists, Foodopoly​ is an essential guide for anyone who cares about reshaping our food system from seed to table."
