Mandatory GMO Labeling: Preparing for Implementation
Recorded August 31, 2016 | On-Demand Webinar
On Friday, July 29, 2016, President Obama signed the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law into effect, which requires the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on food packages. This is the first time that GMO labeling has been mandatory on a federal level. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been tasked with implementing the new legislation, which requires most food packages to disclose the presence of GMO ingredients via an on-package label, symbol, or electronically readable code. This legislation preempts Vermont’s mandatory GMO labeling law. This webinar will address the requirements of the new GMO Disclosure and Labeling Program, the implementation process for USDA, and how you can comply with the requirements while meeting consumers GMO labeling needs and expectations.
