Summary
Everyone wants to eat fresh, clean, nutrient-rich food. The more sophisticated of us want our food ethically produced as well. But the vast majority of food in Australia is mass-produced in an industrialized system and the results are not as palatable as the everyday shopper might imagine. Our fruit and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides and herbicides, many of which have been banned overseas for years. Our beef is more often than not produced in feedlots, where thousands of cattle stand in their own feces, regularly dosed with antibiotics to prevent the diseases that are an inevitable result of these conditions. Our chickens are 'spin chilled' in a dilute chlorine solution to help preserve them, and also to whiten the meat. The list goes on...And if you combine all this with the as-yet-unknown effects of genetically modified crops, the growing water crisis, the continued sale of valuable farming land to foreign interests, and the constant struggle Australian farmers face to survive in a 'free-market' economy where 'big business' makes the profit and their overseas competitors are subsidized yet they are not, it soon becomes evident that food production in Australia faces a very uncertain future. Food Shock investigates these issues and encourages us to ask some important questions: what are the alternatives to our current system? How do we get there? And what can we, the consumer, do to change things? The answers may surprise..
