Cheers of victory from GMO-labeling proponents were heard across the nation earlier this month when Campbell Soup Co. announced it would begin to label its products that contain genetically modified ingredients.
By the end of the year (if all goes as planned), all of the products made by the company, including the Campbell’s brand of soup, Prego, Pepperidge Farm, Progresso, and V8, will now have a disclosure statement on the back label if that product contains any GMOs.
Here’s a mock-up of what the labels will look like, with the statement about genetically modified ingredients at the very bottom:
Campbell Soup Co. is the first major food company to make this bold move, taking the risk that customers averse to GMOs will abandon their products.
