If we were to identify one big lever to pull to improve global health, create economic abundance, restore environmental health, and reverse climate change, it would be transforming our entire food system. The policies and industry interests that drive our current system must change to fix our broken food system from field to fork and beyond.
In today’s episode, I talk with Calley Means, Robby Sansom, Taylor Collins, and Dhru Purohit about industry funding that influences the results of food studies, marketing, and government policy.
Calley Means is the cofounder of TrueMed, a company that enables Americans to buy exercise equipment and healthy food with FSA/HSA dollars. He is also the coauthor (with his sister, Dr. Casey Means) of an upcoming book on food as medicine. Earlier in his career, he was a consultant for food and pharma companies; he is now exposing the practices they use to weaponize our institutions of trust.
Robby Sansom is cofounder and CEO at Force of Nature, a regeneratively sourced meat company based in Austin, TX. Force of Nature works in partnership with land stewards, ranchers, and farmers committed to creating a positive return on the planet. Robby is also a land steward at ROAM Ranch, where he owns regeneratively managed bison.
Taylor Collins is the Chief Bison Wrangler and a cofounder at Force of Nature. In 2017, Taylor and his family purchased ROAM Ranch, a 900-acre multispecies regenerative ecosystem. Within five years of management, the ranch has seen dramatic improvements in soil carbon, water infiltration, plant diversity, and soil health.
