Law For Food: The law affects what you eat. What you buy to eat affects the law.


Consolidation in the Food Industry

Worth a read: the USDA’s Report on Consolidation in the Food Industry. Gristmill has some initial thoughts.

I just downloaded it and intend to give it a look over. The effects of consolidation in a free market are somewhat controversial, but U.S. food production is so highly subsidized that calling this a free market makes a sham of the term. Part of my research this fall will be a segment on antitrust in the food industry, and I am looking forward to that.
