WHAT HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT THE INDUSTRIAL DIET

The Industrial Diet provides all the evidence anyone needs to understand the problems associated with our current food system and what to do about them. Anthony Winson is a compelling advocate for a more sustainable and, as he calls it, humane food regime.

Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University and author of Food Politics

In place of the systems of growing, selling, transporting, preserving, storing, and cooking that evolved into the cultural cuisines of the world, we are surrounded by edible commodities made from a handful of mass-produced ingredients, offered for low price and high convenience … The challenge is to renew food cultures that link us to farms and kitchens, to families and communities. Winson gives us powerful knowledge to help reclaim the pleasures and solidarity of nourishing ourselves in ways that reconnect with soils, communities, and health.

Harriet Friedmann, Professor Emerita of Sociology, University of Toronto

This is a hugely informative book, stocked full of careful analysis.

Amy Best, Associate Professor of Sociology, George Mason University
