No mention of any cooperatives, in food production, wholesale, or retail. The Family Farmer is enabled to resist or compete with big agribusiness thru cooperatives, so someone like Chuck Conner at the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives or Roger Johnson at the National Farmer's Union could be given a nod. Or, since CEOs are popular on the list, how about the heads of CHS or Land O'Lakes? These are huge businesses but still operate to serve their member farmers rather than seeking only to maximize shareholder profit. The foodies would like Organic Valley to be featured, a national co-op brand whose members are all small farmers - their CEO George Siemon or their Director of Cooperative Affairs, Jerry McGeorge, would be worthy peers on this list. Perhaps cooperatives, by their democratic and community-oriented nature, are simply not good fits for lists of the top most powerful individuals. But, I feel a mention of the role of cooperatives in our food system is warranted, and I hope you'll consider these ideas in future lists.
