Who Owns Organic? - the latest in organic brand consolidation

The success of the organic sector has not escaped the notice of corporate giants, which have been buying up organic brands and investing serious money into getting them into your carts. Cornucopia believes you have a right to know who owns these companies. That’s why we have updated our popular Who Owns Organic? graphic, informed by the research of food systems expert Dr. Phil Howard, in a new poster that shows how a handful of large corporations control the marketplace for organic consumer packaged goods. (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.
