Monsanto to win our hearts and minds, WTF?


Winning Our Hearts and Minds? Monsanto and Big Food Pull Out the Big Guns

Monsanto and Big Food are taking the battle for consumers’ hearts and minds to the next level. And it’s no coincidence that they’re pulling out the big guns just as the Washington State I-522 campaign to label genetically modified organisms in food products is gaining steam.

Can industry front groups and slick public relations firms convince us that the products they’re peddling are not only safe, but good for us? Will the millions they spend on websites and advertorials pay off?

You be the judge.

The freshly launched is funded by the biotech industry, which claims it just "wants to talk." And the recently formed Alliance to Feed the Future, representing more than 50 multinational food, agribusiness and biotech companies, wants to give us the “real” scoop on our food system.

Leader of the Pack: GMA Tops List of NO on I-522 Donors

Who wants you to have the right to know whether or not your food has been genetically engineered or not? Leading organic and natural health companies. Consumer groups such as the OCA and the Alliance for Natural Health. Nonprofit watchdog groups. Thousands and thousands of organic and natural health consumers.
Who doesn’t? The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and its dues-paying members. Monsanto. DuPont. Bayer Cropsciences. Dow Agrisciences.
So far the GMA is the largest donor to the NO on I-522 campaign, which wants desperately to defeat I-522, Washington’s citizens’ initiative to label GMOs. The GMA represents more than 300 corporations including Kraft, Kellogg’s, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Hershey’s, ConAgra, General Mills and a long list of other companies that want your money – but don’t want you to know what they’re selling you.
The GMA member roster also includes Starbucks, Target and Safeway, owner of the O Organics™ brand. Which is why we hope you’ll sign our petition asking the leaders of those companies to support I-522 and ditch the GMA.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Safeway, Starbucks and Target: Stop bankrolling campaigns to defeat GMO Labeling!
