A mind-boggling look at the future of food

 In 2050, the population of the world is set to hit a staggering 10 billion. According to experts, this, coupled with climate and soil challenges, will lead to serious food shortages.  
Director, best selling author, and self-proclaimed ‘food fighter’ Valentin Thurn (Taste the Waste) travels the world studying the essentials of food production.
Meeting organic farmers and agro-industry speculators,  and visiting urban gardens and commercial slaughterhouses, Valentin discovers that the future of food will be something previously thought unimaginable.
