In a bombshell announcement last night, which was first reported in The New York Times, Campbell Soup Company has broken away from its peers and has decided that it will disclose all genetically-engineered ingredients in its products.
CEO Denise Morrison announced to her company:
“At Campbell, we are unleashing the power of our Purpose, Real food that matters for life’s moments. Our Purpose calls for us to acknowledge that consumers appreciate what goes into our food, and why—so they can feel good about the choices they make, for themselves and their loved ones.
Today, consistent with our Purpose, we announced our support for mandatory national labeling of products that may contain genetically modified organisms (GMO)”
Campbell has finally come to its senses and acknowledged that consumers have a right to know what they are eating.
