Just Label It!
We believe consumers have the right to know what is in their food and should be able to choose whether or not they want to eat it. North Coast Co-op has been involved in trying to regulate the labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in food for more than two decades. When GMOs first came on the market, our member-owners wanted to be assured that they were not consuming GMOs. As was the case then, there are no mandatory labeling regulations for GMOs. The most we can do is point consumers to certified organic products and to product verified by the Non-GMO Project. Learn more avoiding GMOs. We also advocate for the mandatory labeling of GMOs.
