Like Quaker Oats, the Mother’s brand is not organic, and is owned by Pepsico. The overwhelming majority of Pepsico’s business is in non-organic, conventional snack foods, including Lay’s chips and Tostitos. Pepsico’s net revenue in 2009 was $43 billion.

Test results reveal that Pepsico uses genetically engineered ingredients in its Mother’s brand cereal.
