GMO Funding by the Big Companies

Is GMO Funding causing labeling efforts to be thwarted? I just heard some disturbing news that some major companies that my family enjoys food products from have been bought out by the "bigs" and have sent lobbying dollars to thwart plans of labeling bills like Prop 37. The thing about this is I am finding out too late but I am not surprised.

Here at Herbal Papaya we only source non-GMO seeds, leaves, and fruit because it's something we are passionate about. We have joined forces with Just Label It and the Non-GMO Project (we are under process) because it's something we believe in.

There are many companies making efforts to be GMO-free like us! We want to congratulate these companies. Companies like: Barbaras, Back to Nature, Glutino, GoRaw, EnerG, Lundberg, Manitoba, and Mamma Chia to just name a few of our favorites. GMO Funding might cause slight setbacks but these companies getting non-GMO verified increases awareness and inform the consumer.

We don't promote this to brag but rather to educate because there are many still who do not know what GMO is. GMO means genetically modified organism to find out more click here.

GMO Funding companies that we caught with their hands in the cookie jar include General Mills (Larabar), Kellogg (Kashi), and Dean Foods (Silk). I am not saying there isn't redemption for these companies to turn around their choices but it didn't go unnoticed and it goes to show you that when the BIGS buy you out that making money becomes the top priority. If you grow small your choices are less based on making money.

Want to get involved in turning back the tide on GMO funding? Here's how: Non-GMO Project & Just Label It.
