Organic Food Industry Bought Up by Corporations Like Coca-Cola

“Companies like Honest Tea and Odwalla may appeal to health conscious shoppers, but they are actually owned by Coca-Cola — the very same company that is currently fuming over the requirement to change their recipes in order to avoid a cancer warning label.”

Natural Society, April 3, 2012

You may be wondering why some supposedly ‘healthy’ and ‘environmentally conscious’ companies deceive unknowing consumers into purchasing products with hidden additives and fillers.

Perhaps one of the main reasons is that a large number of these pseudo-organic brands are owned by their very unhealthy ‘competitors’, such as Coca-Cola and General Mills.

In fact, some of your favorite “All Natural” and organic companies may be owned by a corporate giant.

Companies like Honest Tea and Odwalla may appeal to health conscious shoppers, but they are actually owned by Coca-Cola — the very same company that is currently fuming over the requirement to change their recipes in order to avoid a cancer warning label.

Another popular ‘health’ brand is Kashi, owned by the Kellogg corporation. It should come as no surprise that Kashi cereals have been found to contain a copious amount of GMOs and pesticides, according to an explosive report from the Cornucopia Institute.

Kashi’s ‘Heart to Heart Blueberry cereal’ was found to contain grains coated in the residue of many pesticides such as phosmet, carbaryl, azinphos methyl, malathion, chlorpyrifos methyl, chlorpyrifos. What’s more, the company’s products were found to oftentimes contain 100% genetically modified ingredients.

This information has been known for quite some time.

Here’s a really revealing image from Michigan State University that reveals who really owns your favorite company. See if yours is owned by a corporate giant.

When viewing this information, it becomes much clearer as to why many ‘health food’ companies are deceiving you about the ingredients in their products.

It’s time to move away from companies that have been bought up by corporations like Kraft and Coca-Cola and support independent organic brands that actually abstain from GMOs, pesticides, and hazardous additives.

The fact of the matter is that these corporate giants know that people do not want to buy their health-crushing garbage anymore, and are making a last ditch effort to buy up phony health companies in order to secure their fortune.

That is why we see legitimate brands like New Chapter being grabbed by Proctor & Gamble. While pretending to be a part of the health movement, these corrupt ‘health’ brands are doing nothing but deceiving customers and wrecking the health of families worldwide.

What they don’t expect is activism to completely financially suffocate their attempt at playing the good guys.
