Functioning as a division of the Public Citizen before 2005, Food & Water Watch is another non-governmental organization that is focused on accountability related to food, water and fishing. This charitable institution has always been on the look out for any corporate and government issue related to their focus causes.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Food & Water Watch has been a critical advocate in restricting the practice of aquaculture in American waters. They were also the first group to divulge and report the outbreak of salmonella in US chicken processing plants way back 2006. As part of their food campaign, the group is also heralded for stopping Starbucks in using milk that is coming from rBGH-treated cows. They also have a watchful eye on the burgeoning industry of bottled water.
Protecting the rights and access of every American to good water and food has always been the strong cause of the group. It intends to protect all consumers from anything that would pose any risk to their health.
