Video: Cargill says mandatory GMO-labeling is ‘long-term mistake’

Cargill executive chairman Gregory Page discussed the impact of global warming on the nation’s food supply, rising food prices and the battle over labeling genetically modified foods with the Wall Street Journal at the ECO:nomics conference.

Page called for voluntary labeling of GMOs to help consumers become “comfortable with the technologies that we bring into their food space,” saying that that is crucial for the successful use of GE technology to help feed the world’s increasingly prosperous population using less land and less water. But “at the same time, I think the compelled labeling in the hopes of perhaps discrediting or diminishing the safety or the quality or the efficacy of GMOs in the food system will be a long-term mistake,” Page said.
