Connecticut should pass bill to label genetically engineered food

Apr 6th, 2013 | By | Category: General

Mark Winne was the executive director of the Hartford Food System from 1979 to 2003. He currently consults and writes on food system issues in Santa Fe, N.M.

The General Assembly is considering passage of “An Act Concerning the Labeling of Genetically Engineered Food.” This bill would not only make Connecticut the first state to require such labeling, it would also give the state’s citizens a chance to chart the direction of their food system. Labeling food products composed of ingredients grown or raised by genetically modified means will grant every Connecticut consumer the opportunity to make an informed choice, just as they have done for local food, farmland protection and access to healthy food for all.
