I'm in the midst of planning my first organic supermarket sweep, so I'm researching which organic brands are the best. Like everyone else, I like to think that all organic food is hand-crafted by Amish people and delivered to the grocery store by bicycle messengers.
Apparently not though. I'm finding that most popular organic brands are owned by big corporations:
- Kashi and Morningstar Farms are owned by Kellogg's
- Naked Juice is owned by Pepsi
Visit this site for an interesting breakdown of who owns what.
ALSO... I found out that the owner of Bolthouse Farms donated $100,000 to help ban gay marriage in California (Prop 8) because he believes in using his company as a "tool of ministry." Why does hate have to be so yummy?
Bums me out because 'Strawberry Banana Explosion" was always my favorite...
