Recently Undercurrent offered an explanation of the company’s history in a clever, five-minute video. Many people from the food and environmental communities, notably Dr. Vandana Shiva, have worked tirelessly to, asshe puts it, “end Monsanto’s colonization and its enslavement of farmers.”

For an explanation of how Monsanto controls so much of our food supply, check out this infographic:
