 Recent mergers among some of the world’s largest agrifood companies underline the extent to which just a   handful of giant firms have come to dominate the global food system. As the power of transnational agrifood   corporations has grown, debates have intensified over what it means for efforts to promote more just and sustainable food systems around the world. This lecture explores how corporate power in the global food system is being expressed in new ways, its implications for world food security and sustainability, and the politics of efforts to resist it.
