Product description


A brave examination of the calamities caused by a policy laughingly called one of 'cheap food' (Jeremy Paxman Observer, Book of the Year)

Challenges each and every one of us to think again about what we buy and eat. It's almost like uncovering a secret state within the state (Andrew Marr BBC Radio 4’s Start the Week)

A thorough, complex and shocking insight into the food we eat in the twenty-first century . . . Perhaps this should be sold as the most effective diet book ever written (Daily Mail)

I can't remember when a book made me more angry. Lawrence's book should be compulsory reading . . . Nothing is what it says on the packet (Allison Pearson Evening Standard)

Her exposé of the costs of our year-round food cornucopia leaves no packet unscanned, and very few undamned (Independent)

A stark, challenging and compelling book (Sunday Times)

A devastating analysis of the food business (Sunday Telegraph)

Felicity Lawrence's horrifying account of how the food we eat is produced doesn't make for a good night's sleep but is compulsively readable. It is the sort of book that changes attitudes (Peter Parker Evening Standard)

A blistering exposé of the global food industry, focusing on the role supermarkets play in deciding what we eat and how it gets to us. This is a great book that anyone who eats should read. It is also a fantastic diet aid - you may never eat again! (Bookmunch)

Superb, chilling, excellent. There are not many books that make you radically reconsider everyday choices. The facts simply stagger (Scotland on Sunday)

About the Author
