I know not everyone here is concerned with GMO labeling, but if you are Whole Foods Market just announced that they're going to be requiring all suppliers to source non-gmo ingredients OR label all their GMO products within 5 years. 

 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

Walter Robb and A.C. Gallo, Whole Foods Market President and Chief Operating Officer just announced this news on March 8th at Natural Products Expo West, saying, “We’re responding to our customers, who have consistently asked us for GMO labeling and we are doing so by focusing on where we have control: in our own stores.”

 

I think it's awesome news.

Considering I'm not a fun of overpriced grocery stores with (rather ironically) poor produce sections.....I hope this motivates others to do something similar.

It's great!!But my nearest Whole Food store is miles and miles from me.So I hope they can be the leaders of labeling gmo's for other chains.Perhaps inspire some others to maybe label sooner.We can only hope.
