The story of disappeared meat. Formerly meat products consisted of meat, but now its content is considerably lower. The creators of the film will reply to a lot of questions about the quality of meat products. What is supplied by manufacturers from meat factories? What do shops sell under the guise of meat? What is the real raw material for our favourite “meat products”? What is added to sausages, wieners, pelmeni and cans with braised meat? Why are chickens force-fed with antibiotics, beef syringed with brine, pork inflated with carbon monoxide? But the most important question is why all this information is not printed on product labels? Which meat shouldn’t we buy? Why can frozen chicken be dangerous? What is a real “Doctorskaya” sausage substituted with? Why are pelmeni now considered to be vegetables? We will find out how meat is syringed, mixed with soybean and different chemicals and stuffed with antibiotics. Together with the author we will visit the best Russian meat factories, farms and poultry factories. We will go to markets and expensive restaurants, fly to Argentina, the other end of the world, to see elite meat with our own eyes.
