business news in context, analysis with attitude

In this first of a two-part conversation, KC engages with Errol Schweizer, who has been in the food industry for almost three decades and now finds himself working with retailers and suppliers to bring "food system consciousness and ethics to the forefront."  Schweizer is highly focused on bringing a greater degree of social responsibility and egalitarianism to the food industry - and while you won't like some of what he says and won't agree with some positions he takes, his message is one that needs to be heard and paid attention to if the industry is to forge a more responsible and sustainable path going forward.

Errol Schweizer's new podcast, "The Checkout," has as its goal bringing "forward diverse voices and stories from the frontlines of our food system," focusing on farm, retail and wholesale sector analyses as well as on public policy, labor organizing and community struggles.   It can be heard here, or on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
