Lobbying and Interference
If there’s one tactic that unites all industries, it’s lobbying. The powerful food and alcohol industries spend millions of dollars annually undermining public policies that protect health. Lobbying comes in many forms. Campaign donations are just one strategy, but other stealth operations can be even more effective. Corporate lobbyists wield their influence in myriad ways, often interfering in policy making without having to report the money spent. Eat Drink Politics can help you understand how lobbying works, conduct research for your issue, and help with countering these tactics.
