    Are Mars taking over the world?

    While watching TV last night, and noticed that Mars owns Sheba cat food and Dolmio pasta sauces. Never knew... I wonder how many other companies they own but don't make it obvious?

    So basically, they own the cat food market... lol if they own at least two makes there

    Wow is there anything Unilever "don't" make? LOL

    Also, it was even less obvious before, as, up until 2007 Mars was known as Masterfoods in Europe.

    Check out Nestle

    And the infamous Kraft.

    PepsiCo is an interesting one too.

    Proctor & Gamble...(_;)

    Google 'General Mills', then I suggest watching the film Food Inc. Definitely food for thought if not food for my plate!

    google nestle and then craft!

    Always shocks me the size of Nestlé, in terms of revenue, Proctor & Gamble and Unilever would have to merge just to match them.

    In this country they own about half, Nestle (Felix, Gocat, Purina, Bakers) own the other half.

    and let's not forget Premier Foods in the UK. It's amazing how so few companies control what we eat.
