    Gigantvirksomheder har taget kontrollen over vores mad. I løbet af de sidste to år har disse virksomheder arbejdet på at fusionere, så de bliver til blot fire enorme virksomheder. Jo større disse virksomheder bliver, desto sværere er de at kontrollere, og jo mindre kontrol vi har over dem, desto sværere er det at opbygge et alternativt madsystem; et madsystem, som flere og flere efterspørger. Nemlig et madsystem, der anerkender menneskers værdi, har respekt for planeten og leverer og sikrer anstændigt og værdigt arbejde. Hvordan skete det, og hvad kan vi gøre ved det?

    Report

    Giant corporations have taken control of our food. In the last two years, these companies have begun the process of merging and re-arranging themselves into just four colossal corporations. The larger these companies grow, the less we can control them. And the less control we have, the harder it is for us to build the kind of food system that more and more of us want: one that recognizes the value of people, respects the planet, and provides decent, dignified work. How did this happen, and what can we do about it?

    The quiet power of the Dutch Trade and Investment Board (DTIB)

    Article

    For around 13 years, on the Dutch Trade and Investment Board (a body that is not familiar to most of the Dutch public) top civil servants and company lobbyists have been discussing how the government can support the country’s international trade. Minutes reveal how lobbyists and ministers collaborated in reforming fiscal and development policies in favour of private interests. It’s an example of the power of ‘quiet politics’ of company lobbyists in the Netherlands, calling into question the country’s image as an exemplar of liberal, consensual corporatism.
