Sometimes the truth is hard to swallow – and quite literally so – in Rotten, a Netflix documentary series that gives food production the true-crime treatment that will lead you to never look at your dinner plate in the same way again.
Whether you prefer to dine out in gourmet luxury, eat franchise burgers or cook nutritious meals at home, there’s more than enough scandal here – and impact on your well-being – to plant unease in the pit of your stomach.
“Rotten dives deep into the food production underworld to expose the corruption, waste and real dangers behind your everyday eating habits,” according to Netflix.
