The trade groups in the natural products industry often collaborate, advocating for the same or similar policies on Capitol Hill.

At some of those meetings, the trade groups have discussed initiatives across the country that would require labeling of genetically-engineered foods or so-called GMOs (genetically modified organisms), one of the organization’s leaders said.

But it’s clear the groups have not come to a consensus on GMOs.
