Corporate ownership of vegetarian companies, take 2


Marla Rose from Vegan Street wrote in to mention a page she has up on her site detailing the corporate buyout of vegetarian companies. Among the more disturbing (aside from the previously mentioned LightLife buyout by ConAgra): Boca is owned by Kraft (which is owned by Phillip Morris). I had no idea.

Not listed on the page, but mentioned the e-mail I received: a personal favorite, Seeds of Change is owned by M&M/Mars.

Being a conscientious consumer is getting harder and harder…

    Boca I knew about; it is a little more surprising to read that Cascadian Farms is a General Mills joint. Jeani and I noticed their new packaging at the store just the other day.

    Gardenburger has really great new packaging, by the way.
