When just six corporations dominate the world’s seed, pesticide and biotech industries, they control the fate of food and farming. Between them, the "Big 6" — Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont — have historically unprecedented power over world agriculture, enabling them to control the agricultural research agenda, heavily influence trade and agricultural agreements and subvert market competition.
Along the way, the Big 6 intimidate, impoverish and disempower farmers, and undermine food security, all while making historic profits — even as their genetically engineered seeds fail to deliver as promised. Contrary to what Big 6 marketing campaigns say, these corporations are in the game of expanding their marketshare. Period.
