If you want the full list along with the list go here. 

It is not enough to simply boycott the above companies. You want to boycott any company that they own also. Many of these companies own a variety of brand names. Some of those brands are organic! So, I am going to list the companies with their brand names below. Those in yellow are organic ones.  I stopped purchasing anything from these companies when they gave money in California. They are still up to no good and if you are still supporting these companies, please look for other options. They do exist.

We are making a dent in them. Many of them have noticed a lack of interest in their products. By the way, General Mills shareholders unanimously rejected a proposal to go GMO free.  So, if you want to purchase their one GMO free product, I guess that would send them a message that it is a good idea to go GMO free, but don't buy anything else from them. Myself, I would not trust a company that puts out any GMO products. I know they have no interest in my health.
