Inside the Business of Organics: Big Companies That Own Your Organic Brands

What do we do if we don’t want to support big food, but want organic food?

It’s great news that organic food is more readily available. But, I don’t want to support Coca-Cola, Campbell Soup, Kellogg or some of these other ginormous conglomerates that, among other things, oppose GMO labeling.

Beyond avoiding the products above, here are a few other ways we can buy organic and avoid these big food companies:

  • Support your local farmer’s market.
  • Sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Click here to find one near you.
  • Find a food delivery service that deals in local/organic foods. Just google it.
  • Avoid processed foods and drinks!
  • Grow your own. But be sure to use heirloom seeds or a seed exchange. Many retail seeds and plants may contain GMOs or pesticides.
