All the organic companies like Naked Juice, Silk, Cascadian Farms, Kashi and Honest Tea are mission-driven with strong, well-earned reputations for integrity and corporate responsibility. They are deeply committed to sustainability, transparency and, especially, organic. But they are silent over the GMO labeling issue. Surprisingly, these owned respectively by PepsiCo, Dean Foods, General Mills, Kellogg, and Coca-Cola, all of whom have made significant contributions against Proposition 37 which, if passed, will require the labeling of products containing genetically modified ingredients. The LA Times says that most of that money has gone to political consultants and media experts. The five companies that Gunther singled out are really just the tip of the iceberg. There are many countries, which are silent to this major issue.
According to KCET, there are quite a few more of these anti-prop 37 parent & pro-organic child pairings, including:
- Horizon Organic (Dean Foods)
- Alta Dena (Dean Foods)
