US State Vermont willing to start GM labelling of GM food

April 23rd 2014

In mid April Vermont Senate voted in favour of a law that would make the state the first in the United States to introduce labelling of GM food.

Now the Vermont Senat decides, if it will approve the changes of the Senat. The law is supposed to enter into force in mid 2016. Vermont is the first US state that decided independently from neighbour states about GM labelling.

Lobby groups as US grocery manufactures are opposing any mandatory labelling of GM food.

The newswire Reuters quoted “Andrea Stander, a spokesperson for the Vermont Right to Know GMOs coalition, said they expect the biotech industry to sue in an attempt to stop enactment of the bill.
