Naomi Starkman, Communications Director, Slow Food Nation - Moderator

Centralization of capital has an impact on every level of our food system, from the limited number of the crops we rely on to the limited number of corporations that process our food. Critics say that centralization hinders the creation of small alternative food businesses and for neighborhood- or city-based solutions to be developed by communities. The panel will explore how the American food system is shaped by centralization in production, consumption and economic cycles.
