Codex Alimentarius is a testament to the continuing and
increasing power of the titans of world corporations, able to take
control of our most basic needs, turning them into profit-driven
industries, and pressing us into the slavery of feeding their greed.

Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Its name signifies the horror of Nazi
Germany. In its conglomeration of 48 camps, over a million people were
exterminated in gas chambers, starved to death, murdered individually,
and killed and tortured in horrific medical experiments.
Codex Alimentarius is a modern-day tool for usurping the people’s
rights to limit their choices in that most basic of needs: food. The
rules set forth by Codex bureaucrats, people who, for the most part,
know nothing of nutrition or health, are enforced on humanity by
national governments and treaties. Their decisions are based on the
instructions of masters from Big Pharma and Agribusiness, corporate
entities that are on the verge of taking complete control of the food
supply and what’s left of health.
What do these two exemplars of fascism, Auschwitz and Codex Alimentarius, have in common?
Bayer, pharmaceuticals and agribusiness.
Hoechst, later called Aventis, which became part of Sanofi pharmaceuticals.
These are three of the corporations that comprised the super conglomerate IG Farben. They owned Auschwitz. After World War II, IG Farben was split up, putting Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst back on their own.
Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst presided over the extermination of over a
million people. They presided over the starvation and forced labor of
even more. They presided over unbelievably despicable medical
experimentation initiated in Auschwitz. They sold the gas used to
annihilate millions. They set up the medical experimentation to develop
drugs. They profited from this misery. It was, in fact,
their sole interest in the concentration camp. To them, it was an
enterprise, a business whose purpose was to make profits from the misery
of millions of people.
So how does Codex Alimentarius figure in this scenario? Codex is the
agency set up under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) and its
subsidiary the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1963. Its
purpose is to set the rules that nations adapt into law for control of
the entire world food industry, “harmonizing” the laws of food
production and preparation the world over.
Fritz ter Meer, A Titan of Farben … and Auschwitz
One of the founders of Codex Alimentarius was Fritz ter Meer. He was a
member of the board of IG Farben. During World War II, he was the
Wartime Manager of Farben, so in that role, he was the person
responsible for Auschwitz. In 1948, ter Meer was found guilty of
plundering and enslavement war crimes during the Nuremberg prosecutions.
He was sentenced to 7 years, but because of powerful friends, he was
released from prison in 1952, years early.
In fact, the United States’ lead prosecutor during the Nuremberg War Trials stated of ter Meer and his fellow corporate leaders:
These IG Farben criminals, not the lunatic Nazi fanatics,We’d hope that ter Meer’s influence would have come to an end at that
are the main war criminals. If the guilt of these criminals is not
brought to light and if they are not punished, they will represent a
much greater threat to the future peace of the world than Hitler if he
were still alive.
point, but instead he returned to his corporate role as a board member
of Bayer, and in 1956 became Chairman of the Board. He also added board
positions in other corporate organizations, including Commerzbank AG,
Bank Association AG, Duewag (railroad manufacturer Duesseldorfer
waggonfabrik AG, now Siemens), and Union Bank AG, among others. From
those positions, he set his sights on consolidating the corporate power
he understood so well.
Ter Meer is still honored by Bayer! After his death, they set up a
foundation in his name to give scholarships to chemistry students, which
Bayer still administers. Somehow, Bayer thinks that it can escape its
culpability in war crimes by saying that the corporation didn’t really
exist during that time, as it was then part of Farben. How that absolves
them is locked deep inside the head of a marketing wizard.
Fritz ter Meer’s involvement in the development of Codex Alimentarius
is not clear. That he had an interest in that direction is. The Rath Foundation states unequivocally:
In 1962, ter Meer was one of the architects of the CodexOther Farben Titans, and Their Careers After WWII
Alimentarius Commission and one of the main designers of the schemes
that would profit from human suffering.
The deceptive title “Codex Alimentarius” is no accident. It was
devised by the same firms and indeed the same individuals, who gave the
Auschwitz concentration camp inmates the deceptive slogan “Arbeit mach
frei” (“Work makes you free”).
Fritz ter Meer was the top person involved with IG Farben and
Auschwitz. Other members of the executive committee and board of Farben
- Otto Ambros. After release in 1952, he went on to continue as a
chairman and board member of major chemical and other kinds of
industrial firms, and also acted as an advisor to F.K. Flick and the US
industrialist, J.P. Grace, resulting in the Flick Scandal involving
bribery of German politicians.
- Hermann Schmitz, Farben chairman of the board, head of military
economics in Nazi Germany. Later was a board member of the Berlin West
bank and honorary chairman of the Rheinish steel plant.
- Fritz Gajewski. Later became chairman of the board of Dynamite Nobel
AG, won the Distinguished Service Cross of the Federal Republic of
Germany, and was chairman of Genschow & Co and the
Chemie-Verwaltungs AG, and board member of Huels AG and the
- Heinrich Buetefisch. Later became a supervisory board member of
Ruhr-Chemie and Kohle-Öl-Chemie, among others. Given the 1964
Distinguished Service Cross of the Federal Republic of Germany, though
it was taken away 16 days later because of violent protests.
- Friedrich Jaehne. Later became a supervisory board member of Hoechst (now called Aventis), Alfreds Messer GmbH, and Linde.
- Carl Krauch, Farben chairman of the board. Later became a board member of Huels GmbH.
- Carl Wurster, the only one found not guilty at Nuremberg (though one
must wonder how he could possibly have been innocent in his role on the
Farben executive committee). Later, he became chairman of the board of
BASF, now a major genetic engineering firm, along with board roles in
Duisburger Kupferhuette and Robert Bosch AG, Augusts Viktoria, the
Buna-Werke Huels GmbH, Süddeutschen Bank, Deutschen Bank, Vereinigten
Glanzstoff, BBC, Allianz, and Degussa. He was given the Distinguished
Service Cross of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Bayer service
medal, and a variety of honorary roles in various universities and
cities. He became president of the chemical industry federation and
vice-president of the Max-Planck company of German chemists.
Obviously, the Nuremberg Trials were little more than a dog-and-pony
show. The guiltiest of all went on to long lives filled with wealth,
honor, and power, in spite of their direct involvement with Auschwitz,
from which all of them profited. The Rath Foundation has no doubt that
they went on to further their goals of world domination, with Codex
Alimentarius as part of the plan. It’s certain that they continued in
their roles as profiteers, no matter what the human cost. The track
records of Bayer, BASF, and Sanofi in killer drugs, genetically modified
foods, chemicals, and other disastrous products make their sociopathic
character abundantly clear.
Codex Alimentarius, the Brainchild of Industry
Codex Alimentarius has claimed that the Nazi connection isn’t true.
However, they do not provide the names of the people and organizations
that created it, little more than that it was done under the FAO and
WHO. They do, however, clarify that it originally came into being under a
different name as an industry, not government, organization before
coming under their auspices.
The Council of the Codex Alimentarius Europaeus was an organization
formed in 1958 by European industries, under the auspices of industry
organizations, the International Commission on Agricultural Industries
and the International Bureau of Analytical Chemistry. It’s obvious, of
course, that the post-war titans of these industries were the ones
involved in putting the organization in place. Who were some of the most
prominent titans of those industries? Former IG Farben executives, of
It simply begs credulity to suggest that the titans of
Farben, who went on to become titans of Farben’s industrial trio,
Bayer-BASF-Hoecsht and other major corporations, were not involved in
the creation of Codex Alimentarius, an organization set up by industries
to promote and harmonize their trade worldwide.
In 1961, the Council of the Codex Alimentarius Europaeus entered into
discussions with FAO and WHO, and in 1963, Codex Alimentarius was born.
Codex Alimentarius is part of the post-Nazi era effort to take
control of world trade. Because of the power that these business titans
held, they were given little more than a slap on the wrist for their
atrocities against humanity at Auschwitz. Then, they simply regrouped
and continued on their way, with new plans to use the wealth of
corporations for their own ends.
Codex Alimentarius Today
Codex Alimentarius defines the rules for food trade, and those rules
are implemented worldwide. That does not make Codex a health agency. It
is a trade agency. To see this, one need only look at the home page of Codex’s website:
The Codex Alimentarius Commission, established by FAO and WHO in 1963 develops harmonised international food standards,Why should food standards be international in nature, if not to
guidelines and codes of practice to protect the health of the consumers
and ensure fair trade practices in the food trade. The Commission also promotes coordination of all food standards work undertaken by international governmental and non-governmental organizations. [Emphasis mine.]
facilitate trade for multinational corporations? It is not possible to
serve more than one master. Codex Alimentarius cannot simultaneous act
for the benefit of people’s health and also “harmonize international
food standards”. There is, in fact, no need to “harmonize” food
standards around the world unless the purpose is to remove people’s
ability to provide their own locally. It’s obvious from reading
their own self-promotion that Codex is focused on assuring that
multinational corporations control the food supply everywhere in the
Codex Alimentarius is a testament to the continuing and increasing
power of the titans of world corporations, able to take control of our
most basic needs, turn them into profit-driven industries, and press us
into the slavery of feeding their greed.
