Reporter Tanya Datta and director Andrew Carter report from Paraguay, which has become one of the world’s largest suppliers of genetically modified soya – much of it destined to feed cattle that end up on European plates.
The programme reveals how the West’s demand for meat is driving the industrial farming of soya to epic proportions. It’s a phenomenon that’s led to violent clashes between peasants, foreign landowners and the police, and accusations that insecticides sprayed on the crops are causing serious birth defects.
"A direct, devastating report, delivered with the tightly edited urgency that is UW's calling card"
"A clarion call for action"
