September 22 (2-3pm) – GMO Food Labeling Bill: Interpreting the new National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard
Last month, a bill was signed into law that establishes a national labeling standard for foods containing genetically modified ingredients. While the exact details are still being formulated, it is important to understand how this will affect producers and consumers. We invite you to join us for the September session of the Easy as PIE Webinar and hear our speakers break down the new GMO labeling law in its current state. We’ll hear from Janell Hendren, National Affairs Coordinator at the Florida Farm Bureau Federation, and Jaime Jerrels, Assistant Director of Agricultural Policy at the Florida Farm Bureau Federation. Janell and Jaime will review the circumstances surrounding passage and signing of S. 764, which includes a new National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, also known as mandatory GMO labeling. They will also explain the technical intricacies of the standard and discuss what it means for the everyday life of a producer, processor, and consumer.
