CNEIL:
CNIEL, the French Dairy Board (the umbrella organization for the French dairy industry), was created in 1973 by milk producers and processors. In France, Europe and internationally, the CNIEL meets two key objectives: to facilitate relations between dairy producers and processors; in particular by developing shared tools and standards for the entire industry. And to promote a positive image of milk and dairy products among consumers to help boost sales, anticipate crises in the sector and respond with arguments backed by indisputable scientific expertise.

Whole Foods:
Whole Foods Market was founded in Austin, Texas, when four local businesspeople decided the natural foods industry was ready for a supermarket format. The founders were John Mackey and Renee Lawson Hardy, owners of Safer Way Natural Foods, and Craig Weller and Mark Skiles, owners of Clarksville Natural Grocery. The original Whole Foods Market opened in 1980 with a staff of only 19 people. It was an immediate success. At the time, there were less than half a dozen natural food supermarkets in the United States. Whole Foods has grown by leaps and bounds since that first store opened.
