Within the context of urgency that determines most of the debates about the future of agriculture in the European Union, the film explores the intrigues, fears, emotions, political pressures and arguments of key players like corporate lobbies, politicians, renowned scientists and investigative journalists related to the international Food Industry.

What is at stake in food dilemmas? Power, money or health? Concepts which are not always compatible. The Price of Progress is the portrait of decision making within the food Industry. What is more important and what is the price to get it.
