Finding Common Ground
To label or not to label, the GMO food paradox
Is labeling of foods containing GMOs a consumer right? Or does labeling of GMO foods create a false warning? Are voluntary initiatives sufficient or should government intervene? How do we balance competing concerns of consumers, food processors and government agencies?

Exploring the complexity of the issue enables more effective consideration of options. Hear from experts and have the opportunity for your voice to be heard in the discussion.
