Eating Our Way To Extinction takes viewers on a journey around the world, from the Amazon rainforests to the Taiwanese mountains, Mongolian desert, US dust bowl, Norwegian fjords and Scottish coastlines, through testimonials, accounts from indigenous people and the words of scientists.

It creators describe it as a “must-watch documentary for anyone interested in the future of our planet, and for those who want to gain a further understanding of the true cost of what we eat”.

Among those featured in the film are former United Nations special rapporteur Professor Olivier de Schutter, head of the polar ocean physics group at the University of Cambridge Professor Peter Wadhams, and author and economic and political advisor Jeremy Rifkin.

Sir Richard Branson also features among its executive producers.

Eating Our Way To Extinction is available for digital download in autumn.
