Delve into the murky depths of the food industry and uncover the unsettling truths behind some of our most common food products. Directed by Guillaume Coudray and Sandrine Rigaud, this eye-opening documentary exposes the deceptive tactics employed by industrial giants to manipulate public perception and policy decisions, ultimately impacting public health.

In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) identified a carcinogenic additive in processed meats, raising concerns about its safety. Surprisingly, this same additive was on the brink of being banned in the United States during the 1970s, until intense lobbying from the meat industry thwarted regulatory efforts.

Uncovering a web of deception, the documentary reveals how lobbyists have clandestinely influenced policy decisions for decades, prioritizing corporate interests over public health. Scientists, enticed by generous compensation, collaborate on studies that promote meat consumption while discrediting research highlighting health risks associated with meat consumption.

Director Sandrine Rigaud embarks on a year-long investigation spanning locations from Brittany to Denmark, California to Wisconsin, shedding light on the covert strategies employed by the meat industry to maintain their grip on the market.
