GMO Labeling

Illinois Corn does not support GMO labeling because the movement is based on emotions and not scientific fact.  Non-GMO labeling is a marketing opportunity and some farmers will find a niche there and make a premium for their product.  We whole heartedly support those efforts.  But we do not support GMO labeling for all when there is no reason to label.

The fact remains that there are no peer reviewed studies that prove GMO foods to be harmful.

(We also don’t support legislation that mandates GMO labeling for some, and not for all.  The legislation proposed in Illinois offers loop holes for several segments of the food industry – not cool.)
