“It is a truly remarkable story about the very foundations and philosophy of free enterprise. And, tell me, how many stories have you heard of people protesting in favor of a CEO?” —800CEORead
Two years ago, the end of August brought the end of an unprecedented, extraordinary grassroots movement to save a respected and cherished CEO. The Market Basket saga is the topic of one of AMACOM’s best-selling books, WE ARE MARKET BASKET: The Story of the Unlikely Grassroots Movement That Saved a Beloved Business. It’s also the focus of a documentary spreading the word even further. FOOD FIGHT: Inside the Battle for Market Basket will be shown September 18th at the Newburyport Documentary Film Festival and at other locations this fall, and anyone interested in screening the film at a local theater, library, school or community center can contact the creators to book.
WE ARE MARKET BASKET co-author Daniel Korschun appears in FOOD FIGHT. He appeared on New Hampshire Public Radio to discuss the documentary with director Jay Childs in November.
