  • Campbell’s Soup is Labeling GMO’s

    February 7, 2016

    Campbell Soup has agreed to labeling GMO’s in their products and will not raise prices to do so.  Thank you Campbell Soup!!   Let’s start a “thank you note campaign” for them because the big complaint has been  that labeling would make their products more expensive.  They make the products and label them as to GMO’s to sell in Europe so the companies already have the labeling.  My  vision is that this will will start a movement that instead of by law, the companies themselves will decide to gift the populace with the knowledge of what we are eating!!  Hopefully Campbell’s will get good press for this which will cause a domino effect!  Everyone likes good press, right?  Thank you Campbell’s!
