Does Big Food own your favourite organic brands?

I know I don't know everything I'd like to know about the food I'm buying. Trying to find out can be an all-consuming task. Still, this chart from Good Magazine surprised me. I do buy occasionally from Kashi (Kelloggs), and Garden of Eatin', Arrowhead Mills and Celestial Seasonings (all Heinz).

Not saying I won't buy from them again, but I'll certainly be more careful about avoiding them when I have alternatives.

The chart also includes a list of the top 30 food processors in North America, with the cringe-worthy Smithfield Foods aka "Pork's Dirty Secret" ranking #8. They also make Butterball Turkeys.
