At one time, Horizon Organic milk was being considered for our corn-free list, but people kept reacting to it.
Now this article by the Organic Consumers Association, on Corporate Greed & Organic Milk gives more reasons not to consume Horizon products.
Horizon Organics may have originally been quality products; however, Dean's Foods purchased Horizon in 2003. It seems at least since the purchase of Horizon by Dean's Foods, that the company has been slapping Organic labels on non-organic foods. (Horizon Organic's is also sold in the United Kingdom under the Rachel's Organic brand label)
According to Cornucopia.org & Democracy in Action, Aurora Organics sells the following private labels: WoodStock Farms Organic, Great Value Organic (Walmart), Costco's "Kirkland Signature," Safeway’s "O" organics brand, Publix’s “High Meadows,”Giant's "Natures Promise," and Wild Oats’ organic milk.
Please read Organic Consumers Association's article: Corporate Greed & Organic Milk for more information.
According to Denver Bizjournal, Dean's also processes and distributes "Silk soy products, Hershey's milks, International Delight coffee creamers and Marie's dips, among other things." So you can guess how big they really are.
