Table Talk with Roxi Beck

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by food marketing or confused about label claims, this episode of Table Talk is for you! We sit down with Roxi Beck, vice president of Look East and consumer engagement director of Center for Food Integrity, for a conversation about the intersection of food, farming and consumer trust.

We’ll take an imaginary trip through the grocery store — from the produce section to the meat counter — to better understand the choices that are available and abundant in today’s food system. You’ll learn why grapes are bigger, the truth about added hormones and the growing interest in “healthy affordable” food options.
