The Dark Side of Plant-based Food – It’s More About Money Than You May Think

Martin Cohen and Frédéric Leroy

If you were to believe newspapers and dietary advice leaflets, you’d probably think that doctors and nutritionists are the people guiding us through the thicket of what to believe when it comes to food. But food trends are far more political – and economically motivated – than it seems.

… Many of today’s food debates can also be usefully reinterpreted when seen as part of a wider economic picture … This is part of a wider trend away from small and mid-size producers towards industrial-scale farming and a global food market in which food is manufactured from cheap ingredients bought in a global bulk commodities market that is subject to fierce competition.
