Our national food supply is critically dependent on GMO crops to keep safe food affordable and abundant. And with just 34 legislative days left to find a bipartisan, common sense solution that will protect GMO ingredients, understanding that fact is more important than ever.
Did you know that more than 90% of corn, soybeans, canola and sugar beets grown in the U.S. are a GMO variety? And that an estimated 70% to 80% of packaged foods use GMO ingredients?
There are just 34 days left to find a solution before food companies may be forced to reformulate their products, exchanging safe, affordable GMO ingredients for higher costs and limited choices for consumers.
The time to act is now.
We are a broad-based coalition representing the entire American agriculture food supply chain – from farm to fork. We are committed to increasing the public’s understanding about the science and safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and advocating for science-based policies that keep food affordable for every American.
