|California narrowly lost their ballot measure to label GM foods, due to the biotech industry and its organic companies' monetary donations to kill the initiative. Washington State faces similar tactics to defeat Initiative 522. The biotech industry is using a powerful shadow umbrella group; Grocery Manufacturers Association(GMA), which has recently scrubbed its membership list. Cornucopia Institute pulled together the infographic shopper's guide from the archives. It shows Biotech industries funneling big money into defeating I-522, along with their puppet organic food brands that donated to defeat California's GM labeling initiative (on left of chart). Organic food businesses supporting I-522 are on the right of the chart. A victory in Washington State will further GMO labeling elsewhere in the nation.|
