The film is a new documentary that looks at why our Australian food system is broken and how we can fix it. Fair Food is a documentary about producers, businesses and communities that recognise Australia’s food system needs help. Through a series of passionate interviews, the film looks at issues including the duopoly of the supermarket system forcing prices down and strangling the opportunity to improve methods of production. The result is a degraded system, where the need to produce more for less compromises animal welfare, soil health, waste management and ultimately drives producers off their land. But it’s not all doom and gloom. Fair Food takes a look at how the Fair Food Movement is helping producers and consumers to find ways around the existing system, by building new production and distribution systems of their own. Fair Food shows the positive steps we can take to heal our food system.
