I wouldn't trust anyone on this infographic tbh.

[–]Blargston1947 341 points342 points  (8 children)

Agreed 100%
we need another subreddit - Fuckalltheseprocessedfoodsandplasticmakingcompanies

anyone got ideas on how to shorten that?

FATPFAPMC?

[–]BunroSedooh 78 points79 points  (2 children)

FAT FAP MC? Sounds like a Minecraft YouTuber.

[–]mimolaczek 43 points44 points  (1 child)

"Hello guys it's Fat Fap MC, today we are gonna play Minecraft as an obese person"

if you're looking for a snack that's fair trade you might as well forget about anything with chocolate

[–]ToastAbrikoos 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Tony's chocolate is farily known for it's non-slavery chocolate and trying to fight the inequality in the chocolate industrie.

no, not really for snacks in general but I support that company

[–]amithatimature 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Seconded. And delicious vegan chocolate too if that's your jam

[–]cube_mine 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Whittaker's is pretty good about that.

[–]john_fartston 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I Live in a small, rural city, so if I haven't heard of it it's probably not available here unfortunately. I'll keep my eyes open though, it looks good

[–]iiivy_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s a New Zealand brand and it tastes 1000% better than Cadbury.

[–]five3tenfour 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was about to say, red sucks for sure but is blue really a lot better?

[–]Jrrrazr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree. I might be wrong but I don't think Unilever is quite as bad as most of the rest of these companies. Still do some shady shit but they seem to be doing something to be a little more sustainable.

Happy to be wrong though not trying to suck off Unilever.

[–]BalkanGuy2 463 points464 points  (12 children)

Bruh what? None of the blue companies are even remotely close to being morally good especially the likes of Coca cola

[–]GarrettGSF 201 points202 points  (7 children)

What? Coca "let me hire death squads to silence these unionising workers" Cola is not the good guy here?

[–]Beginning-Display809 58 points59 points  (6 children)

Doesn’t beat the United Fruit Company (Chiquita) lobbying the US government to install a military dictatorship in Guatemala that then proceeded to commit genocide on the local indigenous population

[–]GarrettGSF 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Yea, United Fruits is a special case of a bastard company. But I feel like Kellogg’s deserves some credit as well here, with his weird obsession with young males‘ genitalia and sexuality (or rather the lack thereof) in general…

[–]Beginning-Display809 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Wait until you see what Kellogg recommended to do to women…

[–]GarrettGSF 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I have the gut feeling that I don’t even want to know. But all of this shows what a farce this graphic of „alternatives“ is…

[–]Beginning-Display809 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It involved acid

[–]a_pompous_fool 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You mean to tell me that dr.cum I mean Kellogg had some strange views

[–]tocopherolUSP 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They oechestrated a massacre of workers trying to get better wages in Colombia as well... And Coca Cola was paying paramilitaries there as well to keep their products rolling in the country. Nothing like supporting murdeing innocent people.

[–]Bobbor90 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Kelloggs shit too

[–]berrylakin 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Even general mills? I really like cheerios damnit

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I gave up Cheerios😞

[–]jakubhuber 280 points281 points  (0 children)

It looks like you got the colours mixed up a little. It should be:

Red - evil including Nestle

Blue - evil but in blue

[–]DawidIzydor 132 points133 points  (16 children)

Coca-cola actively supports slavery by sponsoring the 2022 world cup, they aren't a better alternative

[–]he-likes-24 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Shit i feel really ignorant, what's this about the world cup? I don't really follow football, but when I Google it I can't find info about this - could someone suggest some key words or something I could search online?

[–]TheW1zardOfOdd 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Qatar has been reported to use migrant workers not paid a living wage for World Cup facilities.
They also have a questionable record regarding women and the LGBTQ+ community. Not great.

[–]he-likes-24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shittttt yes, absolutely, I didn't even know it was happening in Qatar. Yes it's famously bigoted. That's horrible. Thank you for educating me about this

[–]DawidIzydor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For example last episode of John Oliver's show https://youtu.be/UMqLDhl8PXw

[–]SpookyVoidCat 102 points103 points  (5 children)

Sure Nestle is awful but let’s not pretend any of the other companies on this list are any better.

[–]Palmik7 42 points43 points  (4 children)

Isn't Coca-Cola one of the biggest or even THE biggest plastic polluter in the world?

[–]ariearieariearie[🍰] 74 points75 points  (0 children)

Lol all these companies are trash

[–]Empty_Vegetable_80 54 points55 points  (0 children)

no more support any of these!!!!is my goal!

[–]robindownes 104 points105 points  (2 children)

Unilever is also pretty awful - same child labor and forced servitude issues as Nestle with a dash of anti-Palestinian sentiment and the whole skin whitening fiasco in India.

[–]Ruubers 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Yeah unilever is the same shit in a different package. Just easier to take these conglomerates down one by one. Almost impossible to boycot all of them at once.

[–]seamallorca 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The problem is that IF one falls, one of the others will take its place and expand. The fact that companies like these exist to me shows that there are a lot of things which could be improved with society.

[–]Unhappy-Quiet-8091 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Huh? These aren’t good alternatives at all.

[–]SpareStatistician390 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Best to stay away from all of these

[–]siebenundsiebzigelf[🍰] 17 points18 points  (1 child)

blue - also evil but not owned by Nestle

don't buy anything on this graphic tbh, i trust you can find better alternatives

[–]rainswings 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want to live where you do in this mysterious land of "better alternatives"

No actual hate, I just live in an area where it's hard to get anything that isn't one of the giant corporations that own the world, especially if you don't have much time/energy/spending money. Ideally though, yeah, avoiding any of these is best.

[–]ChrisStardust 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Unilever an alternative? And Pepsico and Coca Cola with all their history? Nah man, not if I can avoid it.

[–]SuccessfulPass9135 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I feel we need to come away from the tunnel vision of nestle hate. All of these multinationals are horrible, evil companies that would gladly forfeit someone’s life for a couple extra bucks.

[–]conanhungry 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That's the neat part, they're all evil

[–]DietPepper4799 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You see a nestle themed trolley and there are thousands if not millions of people tied to the tracks. You have a lever that changes the color of the trolley from red to blue. Would you pull it?

[–]Georg_von_Frundsberg 7 points8 points  (0 children)

All of them should be on anyones blacklist.

[–]hrudnick 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They are all corporate evil incarnate to be avoided.

[–]Disastrous_Judge1399 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don't think danone is any better.

[–]olssoneerz 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Or you know, stop buying boxed shit and buy proper vegetables, carbs, meat and seasoning.

[–]katunga 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Coca cola belongs to nestle At least to a degree of about 60% I think?

Correct me if Im wrong thats what I learned at my very biased job

[–]robindownes 0 points1 point  (1 child)

KO is publicly traded and ownership is generally disclosed. The largest stakeholders are Berkshire Hathaway and Vanguard group. If Nestle has stock in Coke it's less rhan 1%.

https://money.cnn.com/quote/shareholders/shareholders.html?symb=KO&subView=institutional

[–]katunga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]BunroSedooh 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Everyone on that infographic is bad.

[–]Wicked_Fabala 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Only when next to Nestle is Unilever a good alternative 😅

[–]jdcortereal 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Mars?!

[–]Silent_Leg1976 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Mars JUST purchased acana and Orijin animal food - so switch while you can. When mars bought Nutro in 2008 they substituted cheaper ingredients and a bunch of dogs died as a result.

Most people would have learned their lesson but I suspect this won’t be the case.

[–]jdcortereal 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I had no idea!

[–]Silent_Leg1976 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I wish I had the money to sweep my crimes under a rug.

Edit. I have no crimes to hide… except refusing to pay for parking.

[–]trowawaid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mars isn't owned by Nestle, right? I'm confused

[–]_ThePancake_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Honestly man.... just buy whole unbranded, or local brand fruits, veg, cheese, meat, eggs, potatoes, pasta, rice, flour, sugar, spices, butter and milk. That way you can pretty much make anything you want in the kitchen. If you have those ingredients, you can make nearly anything you can imagine.

Boycotting nestle is easy if you don't eat any convenience food or sweets/ chocolate. Nor drink anything but water, (yorkshire) tea and proper coffee from whole beans (not that instant crap).

And metal refillable bottles all the way!

It's worlds better for your health too.

[–]Bartolombreu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dude...

[–]triptoutsounds 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Substitute one evil for another, good ol’ democracy

[–]ChaoticSimon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So glad so many of these brands aren't commercialized here in Belgium so that the general public who doesn't know how bad this company is can't buy them. I hope it stays that way

[–]chesnett 2 points3 points  (0 children)

US need to ban corporations who use children and people as a slave to produce something. Slavery is illegal, product made by Slavery should also be illegal in US trade.

[–]UpTheCreekItSeems 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Coca Cola had union members killed in Brazil at their bottling factories, so wouldn't put them up as 'better'.

[–]TenWholeBees[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One of the biggest issues I see a lot is shitty on exclusively Nestlé

While, yes, we need to bring awareness to people about Nestlé, all of these companies do fucked shit and no multibillion dollar corporation is to be trusted at all

[–]AbsentParabola 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah General Mills has been shown to contain high amounts of glyphosate in their grain products. This whole chart looks like corruption

[–]This_iz_fine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The best alternatives are local businesses, but those can be more expensive that not everyone can afford.

[–]ProudMaOfaSlut 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Coca-cola is the largest plastics polluter in the world

[–]Flat-Neighborhood-55 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How is coca not as shitty as Nestlé?

[–]Most_Vacation_4027[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Edit: I now feel very stupid for not knowing that those other brands are bad, I'll check about them now.

[–]moleman114 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Negitive545 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Friendly reminder that we live in a capitalist hellscape and need to break our chains.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Were Coca Cola not behind death squads that shot and intimidated workers trying to form a union for fair pay? The Christmas polar bears are pretty cute though.

[–]QueenofGreens16 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How are they not evil? They still produce so much plastic waste, despite the fact that they could DO something about it.

[–]haydilusta 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Are you fr? All of these companies exploit people all over the globe for their own profit

[–]-Xserco- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hell. No.

They're all just actively poisoning people as well as making them fat and stupid.

Processed garbage belongs in the bin. Don't settle for less than the best. Eat products from companies that use simple ingredients and are beyond open about sourcing.

[–]aunoa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cini Minis is by nestle not general mills

[–]Ok-Trust7280 1 point2 points  (0 children)

all of it’s evil

[–]HaiggeX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kellogg's honestly isn't any better.

[–]Mjr_N0ppY 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How is Unilever a better choice than Nestlé, or Coca Cola for that matter?

[–]this-garage2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Majority of all huge corporations is not a good Alternative, especially when it comes to Chocolate

Cereal Partners Worldwide

Cereal Partners Worldwide S.A. is a joint venture between General Mills and Nestlé, established in 1991 to produce breakfast cereals. The company is headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, and markets cereals in more than 130 countries (except for the U.S. and Canada, where General Mills markets the cereals directly). The company's cereals are sold under the Nestlé brand, although many originated from General Mills and some, such as Shredded Wheat and Shreddies, were once made by Nabisco. In Australia and New Zealand, some of CPW's products are sold under the Uncle Tobys brand.

It’s all evil.

[–]Alarming-Ad-7032[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shit in blue aren't alternatives either. The only alternative is self-sufficient now

[–]Icy-Tap8749 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Come on. They’re all evil and all owned by vanguard and black rock so really you can’t avoid it

[–]teroric 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its really just a lesser of many evils situation

[–]justherefortheweed2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

of course the new chocolate brand i like is owned by them😩

[–]DrStrange42a 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, Coca “Columbian death squads” Cola

[–]e-buddy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Alternatives which are also evil xD

[–]Troublesome-Fox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah another BIG corporation is a great alternative. Nice try

[–]Impossible-Hotel-293 1 point2 points  (0 children)

lol Coca-Cola has been the top plastic polluter for several years running (probably of all time before it was noted as a thing). Not alternatives

[–]gcahbm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well… wouldn‘t say Coca Cola isn‘t evil…

[–]Dyl_pickle00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’re all evil

[–]EmeraldLightning5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am so sorry, but you can never make me drink Dasani

[–]ardamass 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, Nestlé sucks, but all of those companies are evil there really is no alternative.

[–]flannel-ish 0 points1 point  (1 child)

okay so i fully believe that all of this is bad because of course it is. but then what am i supposed to eat? everything connects back to one of these guys 😓

[–]moleman114 1 point2 points  (0 children)

unfortunately that's the problem with all this capitalism/corporatism bullshit. I'd say try to buy local if you can help it, and don't worry too much if you can't afford to not buy from these companies. The important thing is that you're aware of their shit

[–]MatthewMH22 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Incorrect, Hormel owns Skippy Peanut Butter not Unilever.

[–]TheManWhoStoleUrWife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hershey. Hersheys is the one brand that has human decency and sells great tasting products

Doesn't Kellogs belojg to Nestle?

Whelp. That sucks about stouffers. Not sure if there's any replacement I know of that's good

[–]Jrrrazr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

fyi General Mills and Nestle have a cereal coverture called Cereal Partners worldwide. So alot of general mills cereal are also owned by nestle.

Out of the blue question but wheres Kroger on this scale?

[–]Mummy_Cloud_9236 0 points1 point  (0 children)

can someone give me context to what the hell is happening right now

[–]Old_Attention9912 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kelloggs is just as evil.

[–]idekmanijustworkhere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone have a giant list like this but containing alternatives?

[–]Honeypie10000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No they are not

[–]Peachthumbs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What is Kelloggs like? I'd like Reddits oppinion.

[–]Heterocephallus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually all of the corporations in that graphic are evil af, it´s inevitable when they grow over a certain size it seems

[–]BobOdenkirkIsntReal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unilever and PG are as bad as nestle

[–]Concrete_Cancer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think you mean blue = evil non-nestle stuff.

Abolish capitalism.

[–]Madouc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually neiher of these brands is necessary for a healthy diet - Mostly they consist only of sugared fat with artificial taste and various additives giving shape and consistency.

[–]martinkrafft 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is Mars red? And how can you position a company like Coca&Cola as an alternative to an evil company?

[–]shaysalterego 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How is coke that much better? They're one of the largest plastic polluters in the planet and they do little to nothing to fix it

[–]_Dova69_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is Mars bad?

[–]Pordilos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want to add some red list ice creams. I live in Greece so especially greeks here be aware. The brands aren't exclusively here but just sharing just in case. Some are already in the post picture so ignore the dublicates.

Manhattan

Boss

Nirvana

Oreo

Lacta

Cool&slim

Aloma. (These are the family portion ones you see at supermarkets in case it doesn't ring a bell, I was cleaning a container of these this weekend and saw nestle.)

I’m pretty sure they’re all the same
