Present in 46 countries, Monsanto is the world leader in genetically modified crops, as well as one of the most controversial companies in industrial history. Since its foundation in 1901, the firm has faced trial after trial because of the toxicity of its products.
Today it has reinvented itself as a "life sciences" company which has been converted to the virtues of sustainable development. Using hitherto unpublished documents and the testimonies of victims, scientists and politicians, "The World According to Monsanto" pieces together the origins of an industrial empire, built upon lies, collusion with the American government, pressure and attempted corruption.
