Many Large Corporations Own “Organic” Food Companies


I just got done reading Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, which I highly recommend.  I might add that I read it in hard copy as I don’t own an e-reader.  I just like to have a real book in my hands.  Anyway, there is a part of the book that goes into the “Industrial Organic Food” industry.  I was shocked to learn that many large corporations own tons of  organic food companies.  Here’s a list that might surprise you.
