Robert Kenner

Robert Kenner is the producer and director of “Food, Inc.,” one of the more important documentaries to come out in the last decade. The problems associated with corporate farming and Big Food are important ones to solve and they affect every person on the planet. Our food production system is highly inefficient and completely unsustainable. It's dependent on cheap fossil fuels and is tainted by the corporate race to the bottom for the benefit of the bottom line. “Food, Inc.” explains the issues and should be seen by any person who eats.
