Against a backdrop of colorful and delicious food grown by organic farmers and prepared in the kitchens of world-famous chefs, Planeat for the first time brings together the ground-breaking studies of three prominent scientists who have made it their life’s work to answer these questions. The award-winning PLANEAT inspires you to make the right food choices.

4pm FOOD, INC. Runtime: 94 mins Country: USA * BBFC Certificate: PG You’ll never look at dinner in the same way… How much do we know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families?

In Food, Inc., producer-director Robert Kenner and investigative authors Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) and Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) lift the veil on the food industry. With the use of animation and compelling graphics, the filmmakers reveal how a handful of corporations control our food supply. The system is highly productive, and consumers are spending less on food than ever before. But at what cost?
