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?

As States and the nation grapple with the GMO labeling paradox, the Finding Common Ground forum provides a unique opportunity to explore this complex issue from multiple perspectives. 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. Join the discussion and help Minnesota policy-makers find a way forward that balances the paradox of what we all want and what we most fear.

 Key objectives
  • Explore the controversies underlying labeling of GMO foods
  • Identify shared interests in what labels are attempting to achieve
  • Strengthen appreciation for different perspectives
  • Contribute to new strategies for managing the GMO food paradox
Date and Location
  • Friday, January 16, 2015
