Who owns all the bacon?
Now you just need to add the chart of those 10 companies, how many are owned by Monsanto.
How do both Kraft and Pepsico own A&W??
Kraft owns the A&W soft drink products, Pepsico owns the A&W fast-food franchise (burgers, hot dogs, ice cream & floats, etc.).
What this doesn’t show you is who owns these 10 companies. Kraft is owned by Philip Morris, the leading cigarette manufacturer in the U.S.
Phillip Morris is actually owned by Altria
altria is owened by monsanto
What? Monsanto doesn’t own Altria, and never has.
And Philip Morris sold Kraft 5 years ago.
Sorry to interrupt your conspiracy theories with actual facts. Carry on.
Actually, I heard Altria doesn’t own kraft anymore, they spun it off.
Now we all know who we wish we had stock in. lol
And the off-brands???
Off-brands are usually contracts that stores make with name-brands. The name-brand sells in bulk to the store in question, applies the store’s packaging, etc.
So for example, Great Value brand peanut butter is actually Peter Pan brand.
err.. sorry, I thought you were asking about store brands / generic brands. There are also plenty of niche off-brands that aren’t owned by anyone.
Interesting chart overall, but has a few innacuracies it it. F’rinstance, Cadbury Candy and Cadbury drinks are different companies, with some partial intertwining. Drink franchising and distribution is really weird. If you research who distributes what where, you find some strange bedfellows.
Pepsi no longer owns Yum, hasn’t for around 10 years. They still have marketing an arrangement for drinks in the restaurants. Yum is in the process (if not completed) of selling off A&W and Long John Silvers to focus on their core brands of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell .
In the same way Oreo (and others) should be under Mondelez before flowing to Kraft, but eh. Main thing I’d like to see would be a size difference in the name of the divisions in accordance with the flow of dollars. That’d be neat for comparison purposes.
All my brands come from the Aldis.
What about the J.M. Smucker Company?
Does anyone know how to make a chart with a large resolution like this one? Is there free software available online that I could use? I have a mac and pc. I know next to nothing about these matters, so any help is greatly appreciated!
