Default Shopped: The Shocking Power of British Supermarkets -New Book-30% off UK List Price

Synopsis
An elegant demolition of the supermarket miracle, this book charts the
impact that supermarkets have had on every aspect of our lives and
culture. Did you know...; Almost 50% of supermarket fruit and
vegetables contain pesticide residues?* UK supermarkets make 40p on
every GBP1 spent on bananas while plantations workers are paid just
1p?* Supermarkets operate a climate of fear amongst their suppliers?*
Every time a supermarket opens the local community loses on average
276 jobs?In the 1970s, British supermarkets had only 10% of the UK's
grocery spend. Now they swallow up 80%, influencing how we shop, what
we eat, how we spend our leisure time, how much rubbish we generate,
even the very look of our physical environment. Award-winning food
writer Joanna Blythman investigates the enormous impact that these big
box retailers are having on our lives. She meets the farmers who are
selling food to supermarkets for less than they need to survive, the
wholesalers who have been eliminated from the supply chain, travels to
suburban retail parks to meet the teenagers and part-timers who stack
our shelves and reveals the hoops third world suppliers must jump
through to earn supermarket contract.
