The 10 Parent Companies That Make Your Favorite Brands

April 25, 2012


Note: Full-size version HERE in case you're dying to know who makes Fruit By The Foot.

This is a pictograph depicting which of the ten big parent companies make your favorite tampons/chips/detergent/fruit snacks/dog food/candy/soda. Me? I like Alpo. Some dogs like Purina but they're also the same dogs that lick their own assholes all the time. "But if they're eating it for a second time, wouldn't that mean it's good?" You know what -- I never really thought about it like that *smacking head* BECAUSE I'M NOT A F***ING WEIRDO LIKE YOU ARE.

Thanks to 9outof10mms, who doesn't even need all 10mms to be deadly, just a headshot.

  • Benjamin Kopicz

    Yum no longer owns AW Restaurant-They sold it at the end of 2011

  • Pringles is not owned by P&G anymore, it is now a Kellogg product

  • Dave Worrall

    Actually, Pringles is owned by Black Diamond Walnuts.

  • Where does Shinehart wigs and KableTown fall on this chart?

  • tarotdona

    and those ten bigger companies can be broken down even further to three major companies like Viacom. 

  • JK

    They left out ConAgra and the biggest supply chain manufacturers such as Olam and Luis Dryfus and Kagome. It would awesome to see the flip side.

  • why does Nestea appears 2 times on the graphic?

  •  so does lipton

  • grimbldoo

    I kinda already knew this, probably because I've actually read the labels of products.

  • grimbldoo

    A lot of those products were bought by the father companies. Fun Fact: MnM's are made with Hershey's chocolate. They forgot to put Frito-lay in front of all those chips. I thought it was kinda funny that Nestea was made by coca cola.

  • Hanadulset

    I miss fruitopia :(

  • Jack Ostofsky

    Yeah Rockstar is privately held, it is not owned by Pepsico.  Pepsi does have their distribution agreement IIRC.


    You know what would be awesome, is if a blog uploaded this image but only allowed you to look at the 50% of original resolution image, with no way to expand it to full size, and whenever you clicked it in an attempt to see the full-res image, it took you back to the parent post on that same poorly-written blog.

  •  Right click -> view image -> left click

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Also:  Elvis and the Illuminati own them all!

  • ..So is A&W owned by Kraft or Pepsico?

  • Emmitt Morgans

    There's A&W root beer (owned by Cadbury/Schweppes/Kraft) and then there are A&W restaurants (owned by YUM!/Pepsico).

    *The more you know...*

    And who cares about A&W (Amburgers and Wootbeer) when there's SUN DROP!!! (which isn't shown with the other sodas... BOOO!)

  • Shaun9lives

    I didn't see any whisky or beer labels.  Therefore, it seems these companies make NONE of my favorite brands.

  • Not my favorite Hain Celestial Group or Groupe Danone.  I was raised by folk singers.

  • obriencj

    This reminds me of the breakdown of product placement that Red Letter Media did when they were tearing apart the Adam Sandler Jack & Jill movie. Going to have to look that up again to see how this chart links in to the major movie studios
