- For Experts
Award-winning journalist Ted Genoways exposes practices in America’s pork-producing industry so upsetting that you may change what you eat. Genoways alleges that meat-packing giant Hormel Foods tolerated unhealthy working conditions and animal mistreatment. He asserts that focusing on profit alone can distort a company’s humanitarian values. He discusses intolerance for immigrants who arrive, legally or illegally, seeking better lives for their families. While noting that the summary reflects the author’s observations and opinions, getAbstract recommends his timely health messages, business warnings and concern for animal welfare to anyone interested in corporate responsibility, immigration and eating healthily.
