That's a lot of power being the top food supply chain company. We all know that Whole Foods was recently acquired by Amazon.

Eventually one corporation will run the entire food supply chain across the world. It will take time. Decades? Longer? Things are accelerating so quickly it's hard to tell. But after one buyout after another... one merger after another... this greed for power will rule everyone, everywhere.

Think about this. It's not okay for someone to get so big that they can literally control the global food supply and that is exactly what is happening.
