Abstract:

In this film, watch as researchers investigate the deceptive underside of eco-agriculture and organic food production. Though organic products are largely considered the way of the future, sly measures are taken to promote products that are not actually organic while workers are exploited in poor conditions to produce the amount of organic goods desired by discount markets. From a turkey-fattening farm in Germany to a chicken farm in China to prawn production farms in Thailand, the standards of organic produce and livestock are continuously evaded and misrepresented. This documentary delves into the global problem and investigates the market-run future of eco-agriculture.
