Global Junk Food

Runtime: 51m 27s | Release date: 2016

In Europe, food manufacturers have signed up to ‘responsibility pledges’ promising no added sugar, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors and not to target children. So why are they using tactics banned in the West in the developing world? There, they have created ultra-low-cost products with higher levels of salt, sugar, and saturated fats.

Filmed in Brazil, India, and France, we investigate the new tactics of brands like Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Domino’s Pizza.

Featuring:

Every person that is a care giver to children, be it a parent, grandparent or day care provider; should watch and learn. Deception is everywhere and in all honesty brand recognition can be misleading. Excellent documentary for those still unsure of what is going on in the branding world. For me, I haven't eaten fast food for 20 years so this concept of offering games with junk food type rewards, sickens me.

I just went to the MC Donalds India Website and they deleted some of the nutritional values. They deleted the trans fats of the Wrap shown in the movie. Just go and see for yourself. They haven´t deleted them on all their products, the Chicken Wraps states 0.3 g saturated fat. Disgusting

So sad that governments chose to protect the culprits because of the effect it will have on the economy. The people voted them, they should protect them. Sickening :(

WOW - so sad - just like a Monsanto in the food industry they already have the market locked down now their chance to do GOOD to humanity is at at all time high and instead the results are all damaging with no care for their fellow human being.

If cigarette ads are banned, adverts for junk food should be too. Until this is done, we will continue to see soaring rates of obesity and the associated health concerns.
