Next Steps in the Fight Against GMOs

As the public has become increasingly aware of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in the overall food supply, the demand for organic and non-organic GMO-free products has increased. It is important to maintain pressure on the developers and suppliers of GMOs, and the government to keep GMOs out of organic food, preserving our right to choose what is in our food. This panel has representatives of groups working on strategic approaches to fight GMOs. They will discuss what is being done about GMO labeling laws and the litigations to defend them and stop approvals of future GMO crops. The discussion will include ways to promote “Organic = Non-GMO” through education for marketers and consumers, and what the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) is doing to better define and exclude GMOs and create guidance for prevention of GMO contamination.
