July 1 is just around the corner.
Unfortunately, that means that Vermont’s GMO labeling mandate is only a few weeks away from taking effect and effectively setting labeling policy for the entire nation. Other states are also poised to pass their own laws that will create a patchwork of different requirements.
There isn’t much time – just 20 legislative working days to find a uniform, national food labeling standard that protects the agricultural biotechnology that helps keep the American food supply safe and affordable.
Anti-GMO activists continue to make a lot of noise about biotechnology – making outrageous claims about GMOs and attacking reasonable transparency solutions as “high tech gimmicks.”
Here’s what they don’t want you or Congress to know:
Don’t allow the clamoring of anti-GMO activists to drown out the truth about GMOs – they are a safe tool that is critically important to the hardworking farmers that fight to keep American families fed.
There are only 20 legislative days left – time is running out. Congress must act to find a bipartisan, uniform standard that protects agricultural biotech.
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.
