Monsanto Director Says Biotech Labeling Attacks Will Continue

Monsanto Director Says Biotech Labeling Attacks Will Continue

The state by state push to legislate biotech food labeling will continue.  That’s according to Monsanto Government Affairs Director Michael Diamond.  He told South Dakota growers at a field day in Dell Rapids yesterday that even though the industry has dodged the bullet with California and other state’s labeling laws being defeated, the attacks are not over.  And they’re not supported by science.

He says to be offensive against the state biotech labeling push farmers will need to get involved and talk to consumers about the benefits of the products.

Diamond says the industry is also trying to encourage consumers to do some research beyond what they see in social media, because not all the facts are being reported.
