Several articles have found financial connections to the French organic companies Auchan and Carrefour.[edit]

I'm not familiar witht the former, but can you really call Carrefour an "organic company"? It's a large supermarket chains and carries all kinds of products. The Carrefours that I've been to at least have very little in the way of organic food (not much more than any other non-whole foods supermarket), though I don't know how it is in France itself.

wp:Auchan also appears to be a retail chain.--ZooGuard (talk) 11:45, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
I've edited the page to clarify what the companies are. I can't speak for Auchan, but the linked reference confirms that Carrefour sells gm-free products (and started an advertising campaign for them 5 days after the study was released). Carrefour claims that they have not funded CRIIGEN since 2010, but the timing of their advertising campaign (which can't exactly be built in just 5 days) and various shell companies used to funnel money are good reasons to include them in the list.
