Oxfam International has made a graphic showing how a handful of corporations control nearly everything we buy at the grocery store.

The graphic focuses on 10 of the world’s most powerful food and beverage companies: Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Unilever, Danone, Mars, Mondelez International, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Nestle, and Associated British Foods.
