Genetically Modified Foods May Soon Be Required To Have A Label!

March 20, 2013

The tides may be changing, as Whole Foods Market has become the first retailer in the United States to require labeling of all genetically modified foods sold in its stores. Some are even saying, that this decision could change the food industry as a whole.

Genetically modified means altering the DNA of an organism for the purpose of improvement or correction of defects.

Most of the corn grown in the United States has been genetically modified so that the corn can produce its own insecticide. Some researchers are trying to find ways to alter apples so that they spoil less quickly and salmon so that they grow faster.

This labeling news could dramatically change how grocery stores market and sell their items.

Genetically modified foods can be fruits, vegetables or even meat. Many consumers in the United States have been searching for healthier foods to feed themselves and their families. Though there are some great benefits of genetically modified foods, many consumers don’t like the idea of eating food that has been changed.

At the same time, food manufacturers, farmers and retailers are concerned about the possible outcome that may come with having to label their genetically modified foods.

Brands that may be top ranked in their perspective fields could suddenly plummet to the bottom of the chain if their products are altered and their competition’s food is not.

Though it seems pretty cut and dry, there are many pros and cons to each view point. Labeling genetically modified food allows consumers to make more informed decisions when purchasing items in super markets.

We’re not the first country to consider genetically modified food labeling. In the European Union, it’s already required that genetically modified foods are labeled so that consumers know when making the decision whether to purchase that item or not.

The label industry may soon play a large role in bringing awareness to genetically modified foods across the United States and even the world.
