  • The purpose of this thesis is to provide a cogent critique of the potential of industrial agriculture to solving food insecurity. The commodification of food through industrial and capitalist modes of production has embedded global food supplies into a larger narrative of neoliberal economics that touts market based solutions as the answer to solving world hunger. Despite opening up to the free market economy and trade, some of the most agriculturally productive countries in the world are home to the most undernourished populations. This project will seek to give an understanding of the industrial agriculture system related to capitalist modes of production and whether or not the system serves the purpose of establishing food security, as well as offer recommendations for a different dialogue that focuses on food sovereignty as opposed to food security.
