Worldwide, agriculture is threatened
by climate change, forming refugee crisis' and fuelling starvation. In the west, national healthcare breaks under the strain of a ballooning population while, in dumpsters scattered across the hemisphere, food decays.  

Simultaneously, consumers are abandoned in a landscape of misinformation. Our ability to produce, purchase and consume healthy, sustainable food is hindered.

At Sliced, we are committed to delivering a sharp, reputable take on the issues that matter. We are a monthly publication that offers sharp, evidence-based takes on the food industry. We explore food from all angles — it's production, marketing, and consumption — to empower healthy and ethical eating.

The Booze Issue
Booze.  Hooch. Spirit. Liquid Courage. Poison.

Alcohol has many names. Which is fitting, considering its status in western culture. It is everywhere - playing a huge role in our economy, government policy, and our individual weekend activities. It is a character unto itself in films and TV shows and has a uniquely complex relationship with religion.

Unlike orange juice, kale or Oreos, Alcohol is perceived as more than just food. More than just a beverage. Yet, due to this perception, we forget to talk about alcohol as food.

Through articles that dissect the marketing of booze, the health effects of drinking and alcohol's immunity to the green movement, we ponder this dissonance. We remind ourselves that, in addition to its many names, alcohol has another descriptor: a  product for consumption.

The Pig Issue
A creature of intelligence, a slanderous phrase for gluttons and the police, a beloved construct in literature, and the essential element in a western breakfast, The Pig is always on the menu of conversation.

In this issue, we explore a few topics inspired by the quintessential farmyard animal, ranging from animal rights & pig hunting to the carcinogenic properties of deli ham. Always a source of inspiration, through diving into the pork industry we explore manipulative marketing and ask a question: what does 'tasty' actually mean and where does taste come from?

The Orange
Facing assaults from The Market, formidable mother nature and fickle humanity, the Orange, once an entrenched staple of the western diet, is becoming a fruit from a bygone time.

From the downfall of the Tropicana and Minute Maid empire, to the rise of fallacious and frankly dangerous thinking, in this Sliced edition we come at the Orange from every angle. From analyzing the looming threat of a bacterial disease to critiquing the prioritization of real estate over Orange County, the edition asks two questions: Are we looking at a future without oranges? If so, why?
