Food monopolies


The food industry in the capitalist world is controlled by a small number of monopolies; the major food monopolies controlling the production of particular commodities abroad, as well as in their home countries. By exporting goods and capital, they have cornered the world capitalist market for many food products. In former colonies and developing countries, the food monopolies control the production and supply of certain types of valuable raw materials.


The largest food monopolies are Unilever (Anglo-Dutch), Nestlé Alimentana SA (Swiss) and Coca-Cola (USA).
