Robyn O’Brien brilliantly asks on her Facebook page, “At what point does it become the fiduciary duty of execs at the big food companies to dump GMOs, if the jump in Chipotle’s share price to record highs is an indication of how the market feels about this?”

Next up in GMO news is Washington State’s opportunity to follow Connecticut and Vote Yes on prop 522 to label genetically modified foods (read more here).  While Monsanto and Dupont are pouring in millions (read here) to fight against the labeling measure.

The New Chipotle Ad is INCREDIBLE!

Whether you’re ordering the veggie burrito or steak, I think most of you will agree that over the years factory farming has become an incredibly cruel process that is both tragic for animals and our health.  Chipotle’s new, beautifully done ad cleverly depicts the manipulation of our current food labeling system.  “Natural” means nothing and the FDA continues to get heat for the lack of regulation.

To tout Chipotle a little further, a few months ago they announced plans to banish GMO foods from their restaurants, keeping with their mission statement of “food with integrity.”
