"We would love if brands and their founders minting millions from organic food sales would also support Prop 37," Roulac says.  "I think folks have a disconnect on how important the GMO issue is for organic shoppers."

Other prominent investors in the Yes 37 Campaign include the well-known natural health website, drmercola.com, and The Organic Consumers Association, with donations of $1.1 million and $770,000, respectively.

"Hiding the truth about our food is pervasive, unethical, and only done for money," says Michael Potter, CEO of Eden Foods, an organic food manufacturer that financially contributed to support Proposition 37.  "Let this [Prop. 37] be the beginning of an end to it."

The Cornucopia Institute has developed a chart and graphic http://www.cornucopia.org/2012/08/prop37/ that has gone viral on the web, illustrating the surprising involvement in fighting the right-to-know campaign of the corporate owners of many popular organic brands.  General Mills, Kellogg and Dean Foods own iconic organic brands, like Cascadian Farm, Kashi and Horizon Organic, in addition to their much larger stable of conventional food brands.

Other major organic enterprises that have yet to join the many independent marketers and retailers supporting proposition 37 include:

    Applegate Farms
    Newman's Own "Organics"
