Vermont’s new mandatory GMO labeling law has officially become the subject of a lawsuit filed by four major food players on both the national and international stage. On June 12th the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Snack Food Association, and the International Dairy Foods Association filed suit in U.S. District Court in Burlington, Vermont claiming that Vermont’s GMO labeling law exceeds that state’s authority under the U.S. Constitution. Of course, when Vermont’s Governor signed the mandatory GMO labeling law he said he expected it to be challenged in court. And really, why wouldn’t he? In the lawsuit’s preliminary statement it is noted that the United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organization has predicted that by the year 2050 there will be 9.1 billion people to feed on the planet, and that agricultural production will have to increase by 70% to meet their needs; with farmers having to find ways to do more with less. If not by the advances of biotechnology, then how? So far, no one has been able to answer that question.
