Center for Food Safety calls claims of GE food ‘industry propaganda’

It seems like every day the food movement is gaining more power in the fight for the consumers’ right to know what is in our food. Two weeks ago 200 businesses and organizations sent a letter to President Obama asking him to fulfill his 2007 campaign promise to label foods made with genetically engineered (GE) ingredients. Just last week, Hawaiians rallied together to defeat a legislative maneuver designed to strip local control over agriculture. And states like Vermont and Maryland are advancing state bills to mandate that big food manufacturers label products made with GE ingredients (sometimes called GMOs).

This is great news for consumers, but there is one group that doesn’t like what they are reading: the big agrichemical and food manufacturing firms that make billions selling GE products. To push back against the growing power of the food movement, one such group, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, formed a new coalition last week to bring together some of the biggest players in GE food production. The Coalition for Safe Affordable Food will use their deep pockets to push back against the food movement’s successes.
