Having been entrenched in the organic food sector for the last few years, I have come to gain a tremendous appreciation for the non-profits that play such a vital role in protecting both our industry and the American consumer.
And without a question, one of these phenomenal non-profits is Food & Water Watch.
Recently, I caught up with the Executive Director of Food & Water Watch, Wenonah Hauter, someone who worked for Ralph Nader for 10 years, and we spoke about many different topics – food policy in the U.S., what exactly her organization does and where it operates, and how citizens must get involved.
We also discussed her excellent new book, Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America.
If you’re interested in learning about what is truly going on in our food system and how we can fix it, I strongly suggest that you read Foodopoly. It can be purchased online by clicking HERE.
