FILM. DISCUSSION. RECEPTION. There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Food Chains exposes the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of the supermarket industry. In this exposé, an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their ingenious Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States.
Q&A filmmaker Sanjay Rawal with moderator Urvashi Rangan, Ph.D., Director, Consumer Safety and Sustainability at Consumer Reports. Sanjay Rawal spent over a decade working in the non-profit and government sectors while running a small agricultural genetics company with his father, Dr. Kanti Rawal. After working as a consultant on the documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell (2008), he was bit by the film bug. Food Chains is his first feature. Dr. Rangan serves as a primary, national spokesperson for Consumer Reports in the areas of sustainable production/consumption practices, food safety, and product safety issues related to chemical and contaminant hazards.
Presented in partnership with Consumer Reports.
