The Illusion Of Choice: These 10 Companies Are Responsible For Virtually Everything Around You
This chart via Reddit shows how ten huge corporations control the production of almost everything the average person buys, from food to clothes to hygienic products.
$84 billion-company Proctor & Gamble is the largest advertiser in the U.S. and owns enough brands to serve 4.8 million people around the world, according to LinkedIn.
Nestle is famous for its chocolate, but the $200 billion-corporation is also the biggest food company in the world. It also owns L’Oreal, Gerber, Diesel and even pet food makers Purina and Friskies.
Serving two billion people around the world is renowned soap-maker Unilever, which can attribute the majority of its success to its ownership of Q-tips and Skippy peanut butter.
