We offer to debate the CEO's of Monsanto (Mr. Hugh Grant), Walmart (Mr. Doug McMillon) and Tyson Foods (Mr. Donnie Smith) respectively, anytime on the merits of industrialized commodity agriculture, with its long-distance shipping, high inputs and mass marketing (short-hand, ‘Big Ag’) versus the merits of small- and medium- scale sustainable and often organic production, with its decentralized system of production, processing and distribution of food (short-hand, ‘Agroecological Farming’). In fact, given the vast impact of our food and farm system on the multiple crises our society and the world face, we demand such a debate.
Each month that we do not hear from you, we will post a new debate question, cite your public stances on the topic, and present our thoughts and answers. We welcome you to submit questions for the debate.
While those who advise you may attempt to discourage you from such a public debate, we encourage you to defend your industry and your honor as leaders in the food system. We look forward to hearing from you.
