| ||Canada is a world leader in agriculture and food production. But farming doesn’t look the same as it did a hundred, fifty, or even ten years ago. Farmers are producing more with less, using more efficient and sustainable practices than ever before. So why do consumers carry so much doubt around the way their food is produced? When did fear begin to trump science and fact when it comes to food production – and how do we earn back that valuable consumer confidence?
License to Farm is a short documentary exploring the role of science, sustainability and food safety in modern agriculture, encouraging farmers to stand up for their right to farm. Growing concern over consumer fear and mistrust of the food system, increasingly limiting government regulations, and the danger of choice becoming limited in production methods sparked the need for this film among Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) stakeholders.
