I Know Who Grew It

Ecological Farming and Food campaign

Greenpeace is campaigning for agriculture that is good for the planet and people. Healthy food grown with the environment — not against it. Farming that helps cope with climate change.

Quick facts about agriculture:

  • 6 Big Ag giants control nearly 70 percent of the world's seed market, much of which has been genetically-modified so they can reap profits on every seed they sell.

  • 4 global corporations control 75% of all global grain trade.

  • Top 10 global food processing companies control 26% of the global food markets.

  • Animal livestock (beef, chicken, etc.) -- mostly grown on industrial factory farms -- is responsible for 18 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust of all motor vehicles worldwide.
