Our current food system is far too industrialized, opaque and segregated to be sustainable. While there are many factors that contribute to this, from production to distribution, by being an informed consumer you take back some of the power that is held by a select few. (About four giant companies control 80% of the beef market.) Seek out alternatives that provide greater transparency and if possible are sourced directly from the farm.
