Full Description

When he discovered that his home country, the Netherlands, was the second largest food exporter in the world after the US, photographer Kadir van Lohuizen was interested to learn more. He wanted to discover the world behind our food production. Where is our food produced? And how is it distributed across our world? Like a fly on the wall, Van Lohuizen follows the entire process, in the Netherlands, in Kenya, the US, the United Arab Emirates and China. The scale and efficiency of most food companies raises as much respect as questions: What are the effects of these production and consumption chains on the planet? And how future-proof is this? Food for thought, indeed. In this book, which was also partly conceived as a food atlas, Van Lohuizen bundles his images, but together with experts he also takes a closer look at the facts and figures behind the global food industry and shows unique infographics.
