If you are a tweeter, and have some time around noon Central time today, you might want to check out a Twitter q and a with "Food Inc" director Robert Kenner.
The film featuring food writers Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser has drawn the love of the fresh food movement and the ire of the food industry which has launched it's own campaign to counter arguments made in the film. The film is produced by Minneapolis-based Bill Pohlad.
A press release from the film's production company delivers the following instructions:
It's simple!! At 10am PST this Friday (June 19th) login to Twitter and search for #foodinc. You are now following the conversation! If you have a question, be sure to include the #foodinc tag. This way the question will stay on this thread. We hope for a large turnout so please be patient while we try to answer as many questions as possible.
I'll try to hop on myself, but I am interested in any reactions to the q and a or the larger controversy.
