This is a great short quiz from Planet Green that will bring to your attention who really owns many of the largest organic food brands…You may be surprised.
Not that it is necessarily a bad thing if we think a brand is independently owned and it turns out that a mega-corporation actually owns it, but it is good to know.
When Silk (owned by Dean Foods) switched from organic soybeans to conventional in their soy milk without changing the packaging, except for removing the word ‘organic’, many cried deception. Just a reminder that we have to keep looking at labels to be sure of what we are buying. On the other hand, since Stonyfield was acquired by group Danone of France there original standards have been maintained, even down to where the milk is sourced.
Enjoy the quiz and remember knowledge is power!
