Foodopoly is an expose of how agribusiness and food corporations are undermining a healthy food system, and how voting with one's fork will not solve the problem. Wenonah Hauter is the executive director of Food and Water Watch and runs an organic family farm; however, she believes the local food movement is not enough to solve America's food crisis and the public health debacle it has created. Here she aims at the real culprit: the corporate control of food production, which prevents farmers from raising healthy crops and limits the choices people make at the store.

Anyone who cares or wonders about where their food comes from should read this book. I was surprised by the failure in organics, although there is not enough detail to cause me to avoid organics in fresh produce.
Many problems with the current agriculture system are detailed, chapter after chapter. The diagrams of corporate ownership of the variety of brands (including of the major organic brands in that chapter) are particularly insightful.
