I look forward to reading more about this.  It's about time something is done about franken-food.

I'm very happy to be hearing about activity in the Justice Department is taking antitrust action against some of these companies.  However, I always wonder how deep these companies are inside our government.  How successful can they be in breaking up these monopolies?

But, I have heard of other legal action, in meat companies.  Not just seed/genetics companies.  Thats also encouraging.  Huge centralization in agriculture is terrible for everyone.  From the producers all the way to the consumers.

The article was 9 years old. What happened?

wow.  See here's the deal.  I heard of the lawsuits just this week on talk radio out of Des Moines.  Apparently there is a surge going on where lawsuits are being made against centralized agriculture companies.  I don't know much more,  I just did a quick search and found this article.  I didn't realize the article was so old ???
Anyway, I know there are things going on right now.  I just don't know to what extent things are being pursued.
