Who owns starkest tuna
On StarKist (2009 - 2010 article (from food safety news))
StarKist, once a unit of San Francisco-based Del Monte Foods, is now owned by South Korea's Dongwon Industries. The title papers for Pittsburgh-based StarKist went to Dongwon two years ago for $363 million. Dongwon F&B was already the world's largest canned tuna business, but it wanted StarKist as a vehicle to make inroads into the U.S. market.
But the Executives, Officers and Board Members (and buddy politicians) made their shorts term goals... and Multi-MILLION DOLLAR bonuses...
Oddly Nancy Pelosi could be found in strident opposition... to the legislation that provoked this SALE.
Minimum wages were raised in American Samoa... but the canning INDUSTRY... was promptly razed... all over a 25 cent minimum wage bump ... which while provided was never enjoyed... to but sure!
Quite a BUMP for all the American Samoan's lost jobs.
(one reason I spend lots of time staring at package labels)
But hey... the global market is a (financially) healthier place!
