Reinventing the Supermarket

A HealthSociety and Culture podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
Decades of poor research, a broken peer review system, false health and nutrition doctrines, inadequate regulation and a culture dominated by powerful vested financial interests have combined to make the world’s supermarkets into minefields of bad information and products that put our health, our lives and our planet at risk.

It’s time to see beyond the 2 for 1 offers, the health aura products and the shiny false promises on every shelf.

It’s time to let the real healing begin.

Melody Pattison Mehta is a global brand strategist who has worked on major multinational brands for decades. Melody now works towards bringing safety, good nutrition, ethics and environmental friendliness to the supermarket. Accompany her as she discusses the history, the present and the future of the supermarket with some of the world’s top experts in fields from nutrition to recycling, and begins to lay out a framework for how you can personally influence the supermarket to evolve into the place it should always have been.
