With the passage of the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (an amendment to the Agricultural Marketing Act), the Secretary of Agriculture now has substantial authority to issue regulations relating to the labeling of foods containing ingredients that are genetically engineered. Although some believe that the “fight” is over, it appears that many in the food industry are preparing for additional disputes over labeling. Likewise, even with the passage of the new law, small and large food companies may still elect to continue to distinguish between GMO and non-GMO ingredients as a way to market their products to consumers. This Interactive Dialogue will briefly discuss the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, but will predominately focus on what happens next, both with respect to the regulatory process and how food companies may elect to market their products in order to appeal to consumers.
