Description

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 industrialised system and the results are not as palatable as the everyday shopper might imagine. 'Food Shock' investigates how the majority of food in Australia today is mass-produced in an industrialised system that is reliant on pesticides and herbicides. Combine this with GM crops, the growing water crisis, and the sale of valuable farming land overseas, it becomes evident that food production in Australia faces a very uncertain future.
