Oxfam has released a comprehensive report that measures how the world's 10 largest food companies perform on food justice issues. The 10 companies Oxfam scores are Associated British Foods, Coca Cola, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg, Mars, Mondelez, Nestlé, Pepsico and Unilever. Collectively, these companies make $1 billion a day. Oxfam based its report on seven social and environmental indicators in the food production chain: Small-scale farmers, farm workers, water, land, climate change, women's rights, and transparency. No company emerges with passing grades.
Democracy Now! speak to Chris Jochnick, a lead researcher for Oxfam's new report, "Behind the Brands".
Oxfam have developed an interactive website with information about nearly 50 brands, where you can find out more about how these companies perform with respect to their social and environmental responsibilities.
