Protecting Your Right to Know GMOs

You have the right to know whether (and where) there’s genetically modified organisms (GMOs) hiding in the food you’re eating or feeding your family.  Just like citizens living in any of the 50+ countries around the world with GMO-labeling laws, VPIRG believes that Vermonters should have the right to make their own decisions about purchasing food containing genetically modified ingredients.

VPIRG is working with our partners at Rural Vermont, NOFA Vermont, and the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic (ENRLC) at Vermont Law School to pass a bill that requires labels on food containing GMOs sold in-state.
