Shoppers who want organic products don’t need new GMO labels

Groups such as the Non-GMO Project have already paved the way for labeling measures that inform consumers and to ensure these labeling standards are clear and enforced. Thanks to these groups, consumers can be certain that products labeled “organic” are inherently free of GMOs. Owing to this effort, those who produce and sell organic food have seen their share of the market grow.

Consumers do not need additional government rules to find out which foods contain GMOs — existing regulations governing organic foods already provide that information. Those who want to avoid GMOs can do so by buying foods that are certified “organic.” The effort to mandate labeling of GMOs is not in the consumers’ best interests, but instead is a way to drive the share of the market occupied by organic foods even higher.
