CUpS caught up with Nicolette Hahn Niman, author of the new book, Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms during her visit at a recent Chefs Collaborative event in Portland, Oregon. Niman, an environmental attorney, and livestock rancher (Niman Ranch), feels passionately that our food system is broken, and is working to shed light on the horrifying industry practices that have become commonplace, but largely unknown to the general public.

In addition, Niman identifies 5 commonly held myths about our industrial food system, which can be found on the original post.
