11. Ben and Jerry's is owned by Unilever, which isn't American at all.
And by the standards of food companies, or even natural food companies (there's a great chart showing their interlinking ownerships by big corporations, I'm off to bed but I can dig it up in the morning) Newman's isn't big at all. But bigness itself isn't a problem- unhealthy, poor quality products and social irresponsibility are, and I would say those are the real differences between Starbucks and both many of it's local competitors and more responsible food companies like Newman's.
