Never in human history has food been so abundant, widely available, and cheap. Yet that abundance comes with major costs, ones that are largely hidden when we go to the grocery store or a restaurant. A Handbook of Food Crime lays out those costs—to the environment, to animals, to economies and workers, to our own health and well-being. Hinch and Gray build a powerful case that these “costs” add up to, and should be studied as, actual crimes. The book takes up issues of production practices, marketing, regulation, bioengineering, and proposes radical solutions to the realities of unjust food systems.
