America’s Food System is Broken

The Current Food System In the United States Is Broken.

Currently, there are four companies that control over 80% of the meat industry in the United States, and as a result:

  • 99% of the chicken, 95% of the pork and 78% of the cattle in the United States are raised in feedlot or confinement buildings.*
  • 80% of the antibiotics consumed in the U.S.  are fed to animals. In 2016, 18.4 million pounds of antibiotics were sold for livestock.*
  • Most farmers aren’t making money. Median on-farm household incomes have ranged from a yearly LOSS of $3,040 in 2008 to a yearly LOSS of $118 in 2014.*  
  • Conventional livestock farming was responsible for 9 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2016.*
  • In the U.S., more than 10,000 different additives are allowed in the food supply, despite potential problems within the system to ensure their safe use.*

How Moink is different.  

Moink’s vision is to connect tender-hearted carnivores with high-quality, ethically-sourced and humanely-raised meat from small family farms. This is how we do it.

  • Our Meat Stands On Its Own: A great product doesn’t need altering. That’s why our meat is free of antibiotics, growth hormones, GMO grains, dyes, solutions, nitrites, nitrates, added sugar and other funk.
  • We Stand With the Family Farm: Farmers should be able to operate on their own terms, and earn an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work. That’s why we pay them fairly for their animals.
  • We Care for the Land and Animals: Animals are a vital piece of regenerative agriculture, and should be given a life worthy of their sacrifice. That’s why we raise them outdoors on pasture and our fish swim wild in the ocean.
  • We’re Committed to Transparency: We think the consumer has the right to know who grew their food and how, which is why we tell our farmers’ stories and share their growing practices.
