Enjoy Your Meal! [electronic resource]: How Food Changes the World

Exploring the aisles of a Dutch grocery store, this program clearly demonstrates that globalization has made almost any food item, no matter how exotic or remote, available to the Western consumer. But the film also shows the downside of that new global access, tracing specific foods to their countries of origin and revealing the impact on indigenous communities and ecosystems. Viewers witness the burning of Mehinaku forestland in Brazil in order to cultivate soya crops; the creation of inland shrimp farms in the Philippines at the expense of fragile mangrove habitats; and the mass production of sugar peas, green beans, and other vegetables-made possible by low-wage Kenyan labor. A powerful visual study that is sure to spark further discussions of food security and sustainability.
