What we really need is a list of companies that are NOT owned by these corporate octopi.

You're so right Freya. I try to buy from smaller labels+local ones but not always easy coz those trolls own us.

i rarely buy from these schmucks, they are into slave labour, animal testing & destroying the environment.

It can be hard to avoid them ...

I knew it was bad - already, 20 years ago, Nestle was into so many foodstuffs. But this is so much worse ...
And they abuse (e.g. the water problem in California ...)

Old favourites have been swallowed up by these ...
Thanks, Freya

No wonder we are being offered the same crap all over the world. Sadly noted.

It is very worrying that such a small number of companies, controlled by a hand-full of people, have massive control over food and drinks. These corporations are more powerful than most countries!!

Thank you Freya! This sure is scary.

I recommend for everyone to read F. William Engdahl's book "Seeds of Destruction" (The hidden agenda of Genetic Manipulation). It's been published in 2007 but has lost nothing of its attractiveness and truths. On the cover one reads: "This skillfully researche bood focuses on how a small socio-political American elite seeks to establish its control over the very basis of human survival, the provision of our daily bread. "Control the food and you control the people.".

A comment on the cover by Dr. Arpad Pusztai, Biochemist, formerly of the Rowett Research Institute in Scotland, puts it in a nutshell:

"What is so frightening about Engdahl's vision of the world is that it is so real. In this new age of 'free markets', everything - science, commerce, agriculture and even seeds - have become weapons in the hands of a few global corporation barons and their political fellow travelers."

It seems we are there ...

Oh - I forgot to add that equally interesting is Prof. Michael Chossudovsky's book "Globalization of Poverty". It's all there - we just have to want to see it ...

Shop the edges of the grocery store to avoid most of these companies products.

What a disgrace, we need diversity in all aspects! I try not to buy any of these brands (unless I don't know a product is actually from them). Sharing
