Sheridan’s Faculty of Business film series Ethics in Business continues Tuesday November 8 at 7:00 pm in Room A145 at the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga with Food Inc., a look at how food is now produced for the consumer market and the surrounding ethical challenges facing legitimate producers.

From the film website:

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

Sheridan Faculty of Business Dean, Bill Holmes is pleased to present the Tuesday evening film series Ethics in Business at the Hazel McCallion campus.
