Comments Off on Whole Foods Market Requires Suppliers to Label Products with GMO Ingredients by 2018

Whole Foods customers asked for it, and they got it. Last week at the  Natural Products Expo West ,  Whole Foods Market announced that by 2018, all of their suppliers must either make their products with ingredients from non-GMO verified sources or they must clearly label all products as containing GMO ingredients. Of course, while consumers would rather see the change occur immediately, Whole Foods explained that the 5-year timeframe is to allow their suppliers to adjust to the demands. In a press release, Whole Foods noted: “We are putting a stake in the ground on GMO labeling to support the consumer’s right to know. We are stepping up our support of certified organic agriculture, where GMOs are not allowed, and we are working together with our supplier partners to grow our non-GMO supply chain to ensure we can continue to provide these choices in the future.” READ MORE > Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: genetically modified objects , genetically modified organisms , GM food , GMO , GMO foods , GMO labels , GMO transparency , Natural Products Expo West , organic foods , whole foods , Whole Foods Market
