How American Food Companies Go GMO-Free In A GMO World

How American Food Companies Go GMO-Free In A GMO World | Food in America | Scoop.it
“ Grain traders who've been selling GMO-free food to Japan are now supplying the U.S. market.” Quite possibly, you've noticed some new food labels out there, like "Not made with genetically modified ingredients" or "GMO-free."
