Abstract

“Big Food” refers to the transnational food manufacturing corporations that dominate the production and marketing of highly processed foods and beverages, with the ten largest corporations comprised of Nestlé, Pepsico, Associated British Foods (ABF), Coca-Cola, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg, Mars, Mondelez International (previously Kraft Foods), and Unilever (Oxfam, 2013). The types of foods that make up the majority of the sales of these firms include snack foods, confectionary, sweetened milk and yoghurt products, ice cream, breakfast cereals, biscuits, sugar-sweetened beverages, and fruit juice.
