choptveg I love this thread but am I being overly optimistic in thinking that perhaps some of these large companies seek to learn from the smaller ethical/eco/vegan friendly businesses they are buying and backing financially?

It's pretty surprising to see all of this. I suppose I should have started researching this sort of thing sooner.

Big Good Wolf I've heard that Holland & Barrett, who have recently taken over Julian Graves, are owned by Booker, who also own Dewhurst and Sun Valley.

Can anyone confirm this ?

eistxist If you know any smaller, more "natural" or "organic" oriented companies that have been bought by larger, less vegan-friendly companies, list them here. Some that I'm aware of:



-Back To Nature (owned by Kraft Foods)

-Tom's of Maine (partly owned by Colgate/Palmolive)

-Odwalla (owned by Coca-Cola)

-Naked (owned by PepsiCo)
