America's 50 Most Powerful People In Food

In the food world, the people with power are the ones who affect what and how and where and why we eat -- or who can, if they want to. They're the agribusiness moguls who decide what gets grown and how it gets harvested and sold; the representatives of major food processing, distribution concerns, and retail food outlets who create new products and service the demand for edibles old and new. They're the scolds and nannies -- and admirable consumer advocates -- who tell us what we should and shouldn't eat, sometimes upending whole industries in the process.
