    They are insisting that conventional/organic food be labelled instead. This will of course hike the prices of their competitors. Certifications for organic food doesn’t come cheap and the process is no as straight forward, plus the assessment/testing is usually continuous.
    It is easier/cheaper to label GMO than it is organic. Once you know the source is GMO, any food manufacturer that uses that base product can safely label their products “contain GMO”. No one can/will contest that.
