Ten companies, thousands of products

the graphic below lists ten companies and connects them with the products they produce... unfortunately, the graphic depicts only the products marketed by those companies in the united states... many thousands more similar products are sold in countries across the globe under different brand names... in my travels, i have made it a habit to always search for the name of the company on the product, usually found in very small print somewhere on the packaging and it almost always is one of those same companies, no matter if i am in argentina, macedonia, or afghanistan... the heavy hitters are usually nestle, proctor and gamble and unilever but the rest of them are also well-represented along with a healthy sprinkling of other companies, usually german and uk...

(click on graphic for larger version)

i strongly recommend always doing your own checking... i guarantee it will be an eye-opening experience...
