Whole Foods To Require Labels On All GMO Foods
Three cheers for Whole Foods! The grocery store announced that it will require labeling of all genetically modified foods sold in stores, beginning in 2018. We hope this kind of transparency will set a healthy precedent for other grocery stores, too. 

The New York Times reports: 
A. C. Gallo, president of Whole Foods, said the new labeling requirement, to be in place within five years, came in response to consumer demand. “We’ve seen how our customers have responded to the products we do have labeled,” Mr. Gallo said. “Some of our manufacturers say they’ve seen a 15 percent increase in sales of products they have labeled.”
