From the Series

Christien Meindertsma is a Dutch product and graphic designer, and strict vegetarian. She spent three years researching all the ways pigs are used in society for her book Pig 05049:

The biggest problem with the current food system is that it is not transparent. It is a highly complex system that is not logical energy- or health-wise. It is just mostly about making money. We don’t know what we eat so therefore we don’t know what we eat means, for ourselves but also for the food sources. It is super important that we learn what it is that we eat because our food choices can change for the better.
