President Obama Signs GMO Labeling Bill into Law- Corn Growers Cheer Measure Becoming Law

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 16:40:22 CDT

President Obama Signs GMO Labeling Bill into Law- Corn Growers Cheer Measure Becoming Law The National Corn Growers Association praised President Barack Obama today for signing into law an important agreement that protects America's food supply from a harmful patchwork of state-level food labeling laws. The law will provide consumers with more information than ever before and ensure a transparent, national food labeling system.


"We are grateful to President Obama for swiftly signing into law a bill that is crucial for American farmers and consumers," said National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling. "His signature brings consistency to the marketplace and prevents the negative ramifications of conflicting state and national food labeling standards."


America's corn farmers, along with other family farmers across the country, rely on agricultural biotechnology to meet the demand of an ever-growing global population, while reducing their impact on the environment. The bill passed today ensures that mandatory, on-pack labels do not place an unwarranted stigma on safe, proven technology.


NCGA, working with partners across the value chain, has pushed for a solution to this issue for more than two years now as a member of the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food.


"We are pleased to have been part of a coalition of more than 1,100 agricultural and food groups representing the entirety of our national food supply system, from farm to fork, in coming together to advocate for a bipartisan solution," Bowling added. "We look forward to continuing our work with the coalition to ensure that, as the law enters the rule making process at USDA, implementation remains in line with Congressional intent."
