As the groundswell against GMO crops and genetically modified ingredients in our food grows, farmers are taking notice. Many are realizing that more demand for non-GMO means better prices for their crops.
Supply and demand always dictate what’s available to consumers and the more we speak up, the louder consumers get, manufacturers, grain processors and farmers will deliver.
Take a look at this fascinating story that aired on NPR about how a grain dealer in the Midwest has been paying attention and delivering non-GMO corn to Japanese markets. Lynn Clarkson, founder of Clarkson Grain, a non-GMO corn processing facility in Illinois, says they’re also now working to give American consumers what they need too. Goes to show that just because the large manufacturers spend millions of dollars against mandatory labeling doesn’t mean they have the last word.
Always good to know that our voices are heard.
