The Film

Sixty years of producing standardized fruit and vegetables and creating industrial hybrids have had a dramatic impact on their nutritional content. The seeds that produce the fruits and vegetables we consume are now the property of a handful of multinationals, like Bayer, and Dow-Dupont. These multinationals have their seeds produced predominantly in India, where workers are paid for just a handful of rupees while the companies have a turnover of billions of Euros. According to FAO, worldwide 75% of the cultivated varieties have disappeared in the past 100 years. We reveal the industrialists’ great monopoly over our produce.
