WE FEED THE WORLD is a film about food and globalisation, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow–a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question what world hunger has to do with us .
Interviewed are not only fishermen, farmers, agronomists, biologists and the UN’s Jean Ziegler, but also the director of production at Pioneer, the world’s largest seed company, as well as Peter Brabeck, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé International, the largest food company in the world.
* I have to say I cried when chickens were killed, that was not only scary but very sad… and people wonder why I don’t eat meat, and CEO of Nestlé International all I have to say is OMG.

Hemp seeds are truly a super food, as they are packed with an impressive list of nutritional attributes. Perfectly balanced with a three to one omega-6 to omega-3 oil ratio, they are also an excellent source of gamma linoleic and acid. Containing 10 essential amino acids, hemp seeds are composed of over thirty percent pure protein, making them an excellent daily protein source.
Sunflower seeds are extremely rich in folate, a very important nutrient for women. They are packed full of good fats, antioxidant-rich Vitamin E, selenium and copper, all crucial elements in supporting heart health and balancing troublesome cellular damage.
Sesame seeds are very high in calcium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, iron, B1 and phosphorus. Possessing important cholesterol-fighting fibers known as lignans, studies show that these seeds can lower blood pressure, as well as protect the liver from damage.
Pumpkin seeds are high in a form of antioxidant known as carotenoids, a special plant derivative that enhances immune activity and disease fighting capacities. These seeds are also high in omega-3 fatty acids and zinc, two important nutrients that may play a role in warding off inflammation, arthritis and osteoporosis.
Extremely tiny, yet extremely potent, these small seeds are packed full of fiber, protein, nutrient oils, various antioxidants and even calcium.
Pistachios are high in cholesterol-lowering plant sterols and have more potassium than most nuts (291 mg per ounce).
One ounce provides half your daily vitamin E—more than any other nut. It also supplies 8 percent of your daily calcium needs.
These are rich in iron and proanthocyanidins, antioxidants that strengthen blood vessels and prevent UTIs.
Walnuts deliver the most omega-3 fatty acids and contain the antioxidant ellagic acid, which supports the immune system.
A single Brazil nut provides your daily dose of selenium, an antioxidant that may play a role in preventing breast cancer.
