The Center for Food Safety has announced the screening of the documentary ‘Pig Business’. The screening will take place Wednesday, March 9 at 6 p.m. in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C. According to a CFS news release, the event will be followed by a panel discussion on the effects large swine operations have on workers, the environment, waterways, food safety, independent pork producers, rural communities and animal welfare.
Panelists include Tracy Worcester, ‘Pig Business’ producer; Michael Greger, Humane Society of the United States; Andrew Kimbrell, Center for Food Safety; and Kathy Ozer, National Family Farm Coalition.
According to CFS, the film reveals how U.S. concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are establishing factories around the world to take advantage of lax environmental and labor laws.
Event co-sponsors include the Humane Society of the United States, American Grass-fed Association, Clean Water Network, Food and Water Watch, Freshfarm Markets and Friends of the Earth, among others.
