Food Superhighway [electronic resource]

Each year 40,000 tons of bacon is exported from Denmark to Japan. Four hundred thousand tons of Canadian peas are sent to India. And millions of tons of potatoes are grown in the Egyptian desert from Scottish seeds, then shipped to Europe packed in Irish peat. This program outlines the astoundingly complex logistical and technological underpinnings of what it takes to grow, harvest, preserve, package, and export edible goods via the food superhighway - a web of land routes, shipping lanes, and flight paths that connects every country on the globe. But is being able to eat fresh produce year-round worth the ecological price?
