Big Food isn’t dumb. And They’re not about to let you spend your organic dollars outside of their domain. That’s why – very early in the organic revolution – The largest food companies (Kraft, Pepsi, Nestle, etc) started buying up all of the Organic certifying bodies. They also started their own organic brands.
Bad news: They still control most of the food in our supermarkets.
Good news: the table below – shared by cornucopia.net – will give some insight into which organic brands are owned by Big Food.
More Good News: There’s also a link that shows which organic brands are independently owned.
(To find the brands that are still independently owned, consult our new Independent Brand Project.)
As a watchdog organization, Cornucopia is committed to keeping you informed. Together we can fight for transparency in organic food.
