Capitalism and the politics of food pamphlet image

The global food system causes obesity and malnutrition in equal measure. Capitalist agriculture drives environmental crisis and encourages the emergence of new diseases. At the same time, corporations make vast profits through the exploitation of millions of workers and the cruel treatment of animals in factory farms.

How can we build an equitable, sustainable food system? Is it enough to change our own diet or do we need more fundamental change? Today the food on supermarket shelves connects agricultural workers in the Global South, factory farmers in North America and growers of cash crops in sub-Saharan Africa. In this pamphlet, Amy Leather argues that we need a revolution – from farm to plate – to feed people healthily and sustainably.
