Im a bit confused as to what you mean narrow it down.... food transparency is a rather broad subject which all goes together, from GMO's to food labeling, to how a few restaurants have already begun to post on their websites about their food sources.
Also how companies such as Pepsi, Kraft, Kellogg’s, Coke and General Mills, Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical are spending millions of dollars in Colorado and Oregon to try and defeat the propositions that are going on the ballot about food labeling.
I feel that those of us as Chefs and restaurant industry professionals should be paying attention. I personally having an issue with these companies who are using GMO's claim that there is nothing harmful about it, but yet are spending all this money to stop it. For those who don't know about it, should be looking into it, as it can directly affect us.
Yes I do understand that it will cost companies extra money for the extra labeling, but it seems to me at least and in the reasearch I have conducted there is more to it than a a few cents for each label to spending tens of millions of dollars now.
Also the recent approval by the EPA (edited, I had put FDA) of Enlist Duo, an herbicide which has similar ingredients to Agent Orange, etc., etc.
I really started researching when I began to lose weight this past year, and I was amazed at some of the stuff that is either used to treat food, or is being put directly in it
