Big Food Companies That Own Organic Brands Oppose California’s GMO Labeling Initiative

September 13, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
The organic food industry in California generally supports Proposition 37, a ballot initiative that would require labeling of foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). But some well-known organic brands owned by big food companies – Kashi, Cascadian Farm, and Horizon Organic – are opposed to it. Joining big bioengineering companies like Monsanto and DuPont are Kellogg, General Mills, Dean Foods, Smucker’s and Coca-Cola, each of which own organic brands. The New York Times reports that consumer reaction on social media has led some of the organic brands owned by big companies “to try to distance themselves from their corporate parents”.
