Itions of migrant workers ravaged fields in Europe and the supermarket on our high street are all intimately connected Her discoveries would change the way we thought about the UK food industry for ever And when the horsemeat scandal hit the headlines in her book seemed extraordinarily prescient once again Now in this new edition of her seminal work Felicity Lawrence delves deeply into that scandal and uncovers how the great British public ended up eating horses 'A brave examination of the calamities caused by a policy laughingly called one of 'c. This book is essentially a window into the demise of our society morality and health The message is simple supermarkets are black holes into which all other entities are pulled and consumed remorselessly be they animals immigrant workers producers suppliers or consumers We are slaves of our creations never mind worries about artificial intelligence rising up to supersede humanity supermarkets are already doing it Taking our money whilst configuring our biochemistry in order that we become obese malnourished gluttonous depressives our sense of uality kicked to the curb in favour of an addictive desire for cheap unethically produced bastardised genetically modified odourless nutrionless slop in various gastronomical forms A great piece of journalism one that would serve the general public well if we are indeed able to enforce change with our buying power I need to make a change and I hope the advice in the afterward is some I heedIncidentally 'What a Carve Up' by Jonathan Coe is a good fictional tale of similar issues this book raises

This book should be compulsory reading for everyone And if you're not moved to tears by it well I don't know what to say This book made me cry rage shake with anger A lot of it I already knew a lot of it I've been trying to do something about but to see it all written down in black and white in one space filled me with absolute horror A few titbits for your delight • Most of you probably already know that most of the chicken in supermarkets and restaurants is broiler; overfeed filled with hormones and antibiotics spends its pathetic life living in its own shit with no natural light and killed in a grossly inhumane manner and sadly the organic chooks are often killed in exactly the same place and way unless you buy them from specialist farms and that the packaged chickens are filled with water to plump them up but did you also know that an awful lot of supermarket and catering chicken is also bound with pig and cow DNA to make it firmer Which is just great if you are Hindu or Muslim • That off season mid winter salad from Spain Picked and packaged by north African migrant workers on a pittance living in shanty towns with no running water or sanitation and all this just a mile down the road from the Costa Del Sol And even if you couldn't care less about human rights do you really want someone who hasn't washed for days packing your salad• The average trolley full of food has travelled about 100000 miles to get to you Marvellous And even better some of it's flown from the UK packaging especially is packed up in foreign parts and flown back Double marvellous • Bread now bread is a great one Bought bread isn't made like it should be Oh no It is no longer allowed to rise properly any We just don't have the time for that we need that bread on the shelves Of course if it's not risen it will sink when it's baked So we fill it full of hydrogenated fat to keep it solid You know how white sliced fills your mouth like putty Well that'll be why I started baking my own bread when I realised the shop bought gave me belly ache I'm not fucking surprised Plus how can anyone possibly deal with their own weight issues when they have no idea what's in their food • Fruit and veg has to conform to certain sizes and shapes to be sold in the supermarket you know The consumer that's you and me don't want to buy food that doesn't look like it's made of plastic Where the hell am I when they do these surveys About 40% of fruit and veg are wasted in this country each year because they don't conform Even the Prince of Wales gets his Highgrove Organic stuff rejected Best apples I've ever eaten were from my mum's tree Looked like old ladies' faces but tasted divine All this waste has made half the farmers give up Can't afford it And this puts rural landscapes biodiversity and ecosystems under threat 60% of ancient woodlands 97% of meadows and 50% of birds that depend on agriculture are gone • Coffee and we're talking you're jars of instant here rather than Starbucks and its ilk who at least buy fair trade A Ugandan coffee farmer will sell a kilo of his coffee for 14 US cents By the time it's on the supermarket shelf its market value is 2640 per kilo And that's after they've put all the crap in it that makes instant coffee Now hippy I might be but I'm also the daughter of an economist and do in fact believe to an extent in globalization capitalism and free market But this isn't a free market This is bullying This is like medieval feudalism Any wonder the South American and African coffee farmers are pulling up their coffee crops to grow coca beans for cocaine and marijuana plantsAnd why Money of course The major supermarket undercut and undercut and undercut At one point they were selling baked beans so cheaply that even Nestle said they couldn't afford to bottle air at that price thus closing down the Crosse and Blackwell bottling plant And there's absolutely nothing we can do unless every suddenly stops shopping at supermarkets and sadly an awful lot of people either don't have a choice or don't have the information to make a choice For my part I'm getting pretty much everything from Abel and Cole now Food shouldn't be cheap you know Where we got this idea that we had a right to cheap food I don't know Less plasma tvs and simple living IMHO And if none of that has touched you I leave you with this Some 12 billion people in the world still have too little to eat; the same number today suffer from being overweightFor the first time in 100 years medical experts are predicting that life expectancy in developed countries will fall Thanks to obesity our children face the prospect of dying younger than us
