The Price Of Progress

Who Decides What You Eat?

Within the context of urgency that determines most of the debates around the future of agriculture in the European Union, "The Price of Progress" explores the intrigues, fears, emotions, political pressures and arguments of key players such as corporate lobbies, politicians, renowned scientists and investigative journalists related to the international food industry.

What is at stake in the food industry? Power, money or health?
