Chances are very, VERY high that next food or beverage you buy in a grocery store will have been purchased from one of just 10 companies. No, that’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s a fact. An unbelievable fact, but a fact nonetheless.

These 10 companies own hundreds of common brands and have revenues that add up to more than a billion dollars A DAY.

They include Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Mars, Associated British Foods, and Mondelez. All of which will at some point be acquired by Amazon, I am sure.
