Over the summer, consumers called out food companies for racist imagery, names, and political positions. We saw a wave of hashtags, open letters, and boycotts – and in many cases, companies were pressured to make changes. For our season eight opener, we step into the tumultuous landscape of food branding.

Two stories this week focus on how high schoolers are holding brands accountable – from a California teen who launched a boycott on Trader Joe’s to a group of students who stood up to Goya’s CEO after he praised President Trump. Then, we hear from companies who are carefully considering their brand and public image in a time when consumers are more tuned in than ever before, and aren’t afraid to call out problematic marketing.
