The Secret Life of Groceries

The Secret Life of Groceries

By Benjamin Lorr

Category: Sociology And Anthropology


The miracle of the supermarket has never been more apparent. Like the doctors and nurses who care for the sick, suddenly the people who stock shelves and operate warehouses are understood as 'essential' workers, providing a quality of life we take for granted. The product of five years of research and hundreds of interviews across every level of the business, The Secret Life of Groceries is essential reading for those who want to understand our food system - delivering powerful social commentary on our quest for more and compassionate insight into the lives that provide it.
