Who Owns Organic

You might be surprised to see where your organic dollars are going. At the Cornucopia Institute website, Dr. Phil Howard at Michigan State has updated this chart of who owns who for 2007. Odwalla is owned by Coca Cola, General Mills owns Muir Glen and Cascadian Farm, Hershey owns Dagoba....Thanks for reminding me about this, Lesley. ;) 

There's also an excellent Dairy Report and Score Card with ratings of 68 brands.  There are ratings from "ethically challenged" to "best organic practices" to help choose the companies who are doing the best job with milk and other dairy products.  Look for a copy of the scorecard on the dairy case at the People's Food Co-op
