Largest Organic Producer in U.S., Bought by Company with Strong Ties to Pro-GMO

Leave a comment

This is so heartbreaking!  I don’t know about you, but I am very disappointed! Organic Earthbound

The massive Earthbound Farm organic produce corporation is expected to be sold to the WhiteWave Foods Company in a $600 million deal that has raised the eyebrows of organic consumers and advocates across the country.

WhiteWave spun off of Dean Foods, Inc. in 2012, the latter a company that has vehemently opposed GMO labeling with anti-labeling campaign donations. The company’s current CEO is Gregg Engles, the former CEO of Dean Foods, adding to distrust of the company among organic watchdog organization leaders like Mark Kastel.

Kastel, the senior farm policy analyst at agricultural organization for the Cornucopia Institute, said that WhiteWave has done much to stretch the definition of “organic food” in this article from Food Safety News.

He later went on to add that WhiteWave’s Horizon dairy label produces virtually all of their milk from massive 10,000-cow operations with the animals living in their own filth, diluting the meaning of the term organic.

Dean Foods is not listed as an owner of WhiteWave anymore, as the PR reps on Earthbound’s Facebook page have pointed out.

But it’s hard not to be suspicious of the  influence Dean Foods has  has considering that its former CEO is at the helm of WhiteWave, isn’t it?

Dean Foods also notably converted Silk’s flagship soybean products from organic to “natural” without changing the packaging, except to remove the USDA organic symbol. The “natural” soybeans actually contained GMOs according to a Cornucopia Institute investigation.

Eventually, Silk wised up and made key products Non-GMO Project Verified, but the damage was already done in the minds of consumers.

WhiteWave’s Engles released the following statement.

“With Horizon Organic and Earthbound Farm, WhiteWave will now provide the two most popular gateways for consumers to enter into the organic category – produce and dairy.”

Meanwhile, Earthbound continues to handle customer complaints on its Facebook page:

“During our nearly 30 years of farming organic fruits and vegetables, we’ve joined forces with some great partners along the way. It’s all been done to further our mission of providing the benefits of organic food to as many people as possible while serving as a positive catalyst for change. This transaction is another such partnership,” one rep. wrote in response to a customer inquiry about the sale.

As of right now, Earthbound is entirely organic and GMO-free, and virtually all of the produce they sell doesn’t have a commercial GMO equivalent yet anyway.

So should we continue to support the company? Personally I would buy from an alternative smaller-scale organic company if possible.

Dean Foods already has been shown to have sinister motives and the WhiteWave company has been shown to cut corners on organics. It’s hard to believe that Dean Foods doesn’t have some sort of say in the WhiteWave Co.’s operations considering the ties they still have, and we all know how desperate the big food companies have become due to the ongoing organic revolution.

The Organic Consumers Association has previously called for boycotts of Horizon and Silk, two WhiteWave properties.

While a boycott of Earthbound isn’t quite necessary just yet, I would definitely feel better buying from smaller farms whenever possible, and to keep a close eye on this situation.

Hello, I am an artist, health nut, nature nut, certified holistic health coach, mom and entrepreneur, to name a few! I was self employed for about 16 years, until my car accident. I was the owner of a non toxic nail spa were I would also sell my art and jewelry. I had to close my business when I died in a car accident. While I was in the hospital I signed up to study nutrition with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition online classes to heal myself. Copy and paste this link for a free sample class: http://geti.in/1EorT7Z . Doctors just kept putting me on meds and increasing the meds. I died for 7 minutes, I was in a coma for three days, had many broken bones and 3 emergency surgeries and I had to spend five months in a rehab facility and I still came home in a wheelchair and had to live with my parents for 8 months. I had a colostomy bag from the accident and I had a reverse colostomy a year and a half after the accident and I did it with no narcotic pain meds, thanks to what I learned with IIN. I came home from the hospital after having my intestines sown back together on and I did it with no narcotic pain meds, that amazes me, I had to repeat it. You can read my full story here in the 'About' section: www.kathrynmancarella.com On my website you can fill out a health history form that I will refer to during our free consultation.
