It used to be easy to tell if your food had integrity, but over time we started becoming more disconnected from the source of our food. In the modern world, it isn’t possible for each of us to monitor the integrity of the entire food system. So how can we keep the system honest when there’s so much of it we can’t see?
We’d like to think the corporations and lawmakers that were supposed to keep our food safe have our best interest in mind. But the reality is there are those who refuse to play by the rules we’ve created as a society: to ensure the health and welfare of animals, to protect the environment, to treat our food workers with respect, and to keep the food we eat safe for our families.
Luckily, there are eyes and ears along the way that care – those who speak out and tell us the truth – even when threatened and intimidated.
It takes a community – whistleblowers, truth-tellers and advocates – to safeguard our food. The Government Accountability Project, through its Food Integrity Campaign, supports that community. Help us protect and empower those who protect our food’s integrity.
