Today on Your Call: How do multinational food companies operate?
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about a recent investigation by Oxfam America focusing on global food firms’ ethical shortfalls. The report reveals that the world’s largest food companies have massed huge profits while exploiting millions of people who supply land, labor, water and commodities to make their products. So how should these companies be held accountable? And which companies are the biggest violators? Do you know the business practices behind the brands of the food you eat? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
