Amrit Doll: Consumer Or Citizen?

 

WHEN WE SHOP FOR FOOD, WE PURCHASE GOODS WHICH ARRIVE ON SUPERMARKET SHELVES PRODUCED BY METHODS WE KNOW LITTLE ABOUT AND HAVE NO SAY IN. IF WE KNEW MORE ABOUT THE PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF OUR FOOD, HOW DOES IT SHAPE THE FOOD WE EAT?

We can participate in the larger Food Citizenship movement by sharing information and exercising consumer choice ethically. It gives us a chance to influence food production policy and transforms us from thoughtless consumers into active citizens.
