The More You Know – Who Owns Your Food?

Allow me to introduce you to the tip of the global food control ice burg. At the time this photo was published, not 10, but 4 banking institutions dictate the vast majority of the food supply provided to & consumed by you & I. A relatively scary proposition.

Primary Stakeholder in Coca Cola – Berkshire Hathaway
Primary Stakeholder in Kraft – Berkshire Hathaway
Primary Stakeholder in Proctor & Gamble – Berkshire Hathaway
Primary Stakeholder in Johnson/Johnson – Vanguard
Primary Stakeholder in PepsiCo – Vanguard
Primary Stakeholder in Unilever – Dodge&Cox

Primary Stakeholder in Mars, Inc – N/A (But, Purchased Wrigley in 2008 alongside Berkshire Hathaway)

Interested in pulling back the curtain further? As I said. This is just the tip of the ice burg. #THEMOREYOUKNOW #EATLOCAL
