On election day next month, a voter initiative in California puts mandatory GMO labeling on the ballot. The vote will determine whether to require, or not, the labeling of food products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Although recent polls show that more than 90% of Americans want to know whether or not their food contains GMOs, many major corporations, including Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Pepsi and Coke are spending millions fighting the measure, which stands to impact labeling practices across the country.
To provide shoppers with a solution to unlabeled GMOs, many companies in the natural products sector are adopting the Non-GMO Project Verified seal with more that 6,000 Non-GMO Project Verified products.
Until GMO labeling is mandatory, look for the Non-GMO Project Verified seal and support the brands and products committed to ensuring the sustained availability of non-GMO options, and their belief that consumers deserve an informed choice.
