We were recently doing research on key ingredients in much of Kraft foods, especially those that kids enjoy very much. Kraft foods that we grew up enjoying as children because we had little knowledge of true ingredients at that time. Although GMO’s have been around for over 20 years, it is now that they are becoming the staple in most processed foods across the board.
It is just strange that every time we do some research on a particular food product or consumer good, we come across some weird information at the same time. Things that might be considered too coincidental for the average person to comprehend. Suddenly Kraft foods, a brand that began in the early 1900’s. In the recent two years Kraft made a sort of split in the company and changed its name from the 1920’s until now to Mondelez with the Latin line over the last e, giving it the sound leez. However the strange part is not that, its the fact that there is a very coincidental trend among giants today almost as if they are really together in one way or another.
When Monsanto began
It was 1901 when Monsanto began and aside from being in the biotechnology fields, it has become the worlds leading seed company that seems to be taking over every single farmland in the world from Egypt to Texas. On any given day you can find the people of Egypt picketing for Monsanto to leave, but reality is that it is not going anywhere and it continues to put its giant octopus hold on everything. Monsanto has gotten to the cotton farms of India to the local American drugs like Celebrex. There is no question that Monsanto is a giant and very unfortunately will likely be the worlds only food source in the coming decades in our opinion. Like it or not, the food on your table is or will very soon be from some sort of genetically modified process whether toxic, cancerous or not. The Americans will not know because labeling has been shot down in the majority of states for GMO foods.
The strange Mondelez story
Besides it’s history, the name Monsanto is just strange for a monster company like this, perhaps the Mon stands for Monster just like Mondelez. What is so ironic is that the two of them are deeply involved in feeding the mass public across the globe, yet they are not part of the same company at all. It is beyond coincidental that Mondelez came up with the name Mondelez without putting Monsanto into perspective. When Mondelez was questioned why and how they came up with such a crappy name to take place of the world famous Kraft, there response was that two global employees actually came up with it. Yes, feed me some more GMO seeds please and maybe it will begin to make more sense.
Even Bloomberg writes that “Kraft name change leaves Experts guessing” further writing
The second problem: What does it mean? The name is a combination of the word “monde,” derived from the Latin for “world,” and “delez,” an expression for delicious. The name might suit a company commanding $32 billion in revenue from Beijing to Berlin if the connection was apparent. It’s not, Beckhardt said.
Just a monstrous company taking the perfectly good wordwide name Kraft and changing it to a similarly strange name of another multi billion dollar company just doesn’t really jive too well. We’ll leave it at that for now. Please tell us your thoughts of the rarity and name funkiness.
