Low Hanging Fruit: Support Prop 37

Two of my favorite brands, Organic Valley and Eden Organics, are among ten popular brands to endorse Prop 37, California’s GMO food labeling initiative.

Organic Valley

The usual suspects (Cargill, ConAgra, Heinz, Coke) are spending like crazy to support Monsanto in defeating the measure.  But some seemingly innocuous brands are in on the shenanigans, too.  Show your support by avoiding these at the grocery store:

Kashi, Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms (owned by Kellogg’s)

Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm, Larabar (owned by General Mills)

Horizon, Silk, White Wave (owned by Dean Foods)

R.W. Knudsen, Santa Cruz Organic (owned by Smuckers)

“O” Organics (Safeway)

Boca Burgers and Back to Nature (owned by Kraft)

While this doesn’t directly affect us here in Arizona, we will likely be faced with similar decisions in the future.  Monsanto recently threatened to sue Vermont for trying to pass similar legislation.  Send the message that we won’t tolerate bullying and give your support to brands that support transparency.

  1. We are hoping that California will be the first in a long string of dominoes. The most recent polls show an overwhelming support for labeling with the “yes” vote leading by 40 points! But, there are still two months until election day, and those opposing have deep coffers. I love that people all over the country are working to get this initiative passed!
