Will this include your deli or only your packaged foods? As a long time whole foods customer I'd honestly love an answer to this question. I've seen a lot of improvements since I've been asking these questions on your facebook pages but I've never had an answer about the deli.

I cannot thank you enough for this, Whole Foods! I wish the governments would wake up and do something about this issue, but thank you for taking the initiative without them. I do hope that reputable companies will not take five years to label their products, however! I can only dream of the day when GMOs are banned once and for all, and Monsanto is shut down.

Yet another reason why I love your store! Thank you for doing what our regulators are afraid to do. Way to go, Whole Foods!

Thank you. This is long overdue and I could not be more proud of you guys as a company for trying this. I am scared to death of GMO's and would heartily try to support a company that is willing to go the extra mile for it's customers. I've never been to one of your stores, but you can rest assured, even if it takes me a little out of my way, I will make the effort. Thank you so much.

Whole Foods support of this movement is one of the most exciting announcements I have heard!!!! My number one criteria for purchasing food is to not buy products that have any type of GMO in the ingredients!!! Whole Foods I love you this step forward. We will make a difference in America!!!! Me, my kids and my grand kids and especially the next generation THANK YOU!!!

So... let me get this straight. FIVE YEARS to put the labels on? and source out non-GMO products? It doesn't look like WF is serious about this issue at all.

Great news that you will provide what the customers want and are entitled to have in labeling what they are buying....I can now, and will now, shop at Whole Foods again. You regained a lost customer.

I am thrilled to hear the news re the GMO labeling by Whole Foods Markets!! It is so unfortunate that most consumers, even those who are mindful of what they eat and buy, have no idea what GMOs are. Thank you for leading the way in increasing awareness and providing healthy foods!

Thank you so much, this is long over due, we are very grateful. We hope you can begin implementation much sooner than five years. And please do make public updates as you progress, this will encourage other retailers to follow your example. We are inspired by your step and will shop more at WF!

This is the best news!! Thanks so much for caring enough about the issue to take such a stand. I live pretty far from Whole Foods, so I usually only shop there occasionally, but after hearing this announcement, I plan on going there more often!

Thank you! Big win for consumer choice, health, and our environment! I just bought your "Conscious Capitalism" book a couple days ago and hadn't even had a chance to start reading it yet - but I have a fair idea this is EXACTLY what it's about. Awesome. This is such good news!
