The book examines the role of corporations in the formation of the norms, rules, and institutions that govern the global food system, and evaluates the wider implications of corporate power in global food governance for the sustainability of the global food system and for societal debates over sustainability in the global food system. It also identifies different channels through which corporations influence global food and agriculture governance and examines the implications of that influence.
