Cornucopia offers this list of nationally available, organic brands that are currently independently owned. (Scroll down for list and see poster to the right.) These brands are committed to selling only certified organic products. A dwindling number of organic brands are independent—most are owned by large conglomerates. Once acquired by a major food processing company, organic brands tend to become diluted. They may begin to offer non-organic food or source their raw materials from industrialized farms. Sometimes the brand disappears altogether once it has been bought out by Big Food.  

This project is informed by the important work of Dr. Phil Howard, Michigan State University professor and member of International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems.

To see how consolidation has impacted the marketplace, see Cornucopia’s updated Who Owns Organic? infographic.
