• Letters: Not surprised
    June 17,2014

    It was inevitable that the grocers association and such would sue Vermont over the new GMO labeling law — they are lobbyists who make money by fighting these battles. Now is the opportunity for those who feel strongly about labeling GMOs to donate money to the Vermont fund to fight this legal battle.

    Other countries have GMO labeling laws. Consumers in the United States have the right to know too. If the GMO companies are so proud of what they produce, then they should be voluntarily labeling instead of fighting. In the long run this is a battle that the GMO companies are going to lose. Labeling will become the default. The question is how much money will the grocers association and the GMO companies waste fighting rather than doing the right thing, which is to produce a safe product and marketing it well.
