AMSTERDAM, October 25, 2010 - Do you ever stop to think about where your food comes from? The viral
video campaign 'Face Your Food' brings together a global online community to
fight for a more sustainable food industry.
The production of food has a major impact on our world. Thousands of
plant and animal species are under threat due to harmful agricultural
practices. Farmers across the globe are suffering because of unfair trade.
The viral video campaign 'Face Your Food' invites people from across the
globe to hold the food industry accountable for the way our food is produced.
The food industry has the power and the responsibility to make sure that
the production of the food we enjoy does not harm our planet. Fairfood
International, a non-profit lobby organisation, encourages food and beverage
companies to live up to their responsibility and make their products more
Global online support
Lobbying multinational companies to change their production and trade
methods requires tremendous public support. On UN World Food Day Fairfood
launched its viral video campaign 'Face Your Food' to rally support. This
campaign invites people from across the world to film themselves while
eating. The video is then automatically slowed down and played backwards.
This faces us with the question where our food comes from. By participating
in this campaign and showing your support for Fairfood on Facebook, you can
join the fight for a sustainable future.
Check out the campaign page www.face-your-food.org and the
promotional video www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTCyChcdCSY.
