The Traffickers 2

Following on from The Traffickers, which explored the black market, The Traffickers: Food uncovers the truth behind the global food industry. Both series are hosted by British journalist Nelufar Hedayat.

Nelufar examines how our appetites are changing our world, investigating the global food chain and the origins of our favourite ingredients. As she travels the world, she reveals the true cost of food to people, animals and the planet. 

This series spans continents from the North Pole to China, the oceans of West Africa to the forests of Asia, and explores the future of food and how we're going to feed our rapidly expanding population.

In the first episode, "Water": agriculture uses up to 70% of global fresh water and as much as 60% of this is wasted each year. From the sacred lands of one of California's indigenous tribes to parched communities in the Peruvian desert, Nelufar asks who has the right to water.
