I assume there are folks in the food industry who oppose labeling of genetically modified food, but they have elected to take a pass on vocal opposition to the “Just Label It” campaign.
Right now genetically modified food is associated with chemical companies and agribusiness giants.
If genetically engineered fruits and vegetables delivered better taste, elevated nutrition or some other Rx for healthy living, perhaps retailers would be the first to say government mandated labeling of genetically engineered food is not needed.
After all, they would be drawing up the point-of-sale signs themselves.
