Magnificent! I will have to see if there are any Whole Foods Markets here in London and shop there. Since you care aboutn looking after me, I figure it is only right and proper for me to return the favour.

I l ive in the UK but and have many relatives who live in the USA. I will be passing this encouraging news to them. Unlike many US citizens, most people in the UK have been aware of GM and resisted it vigorously for MANY years and our supermarkets have responded to that resistance. It would be financial and PR suicide for them to do otherwise. You are supported and applauded, further and wider than you might imagine. This is a great start, as everyone, for good or ill, is affected by the quality of food that they and everyone else eats.

I am glad; no one should ever be faced with eating GMO foods without the knowledge they are doing so. I am force, however, to suggest that Whole Foods should really avoid selling GMO foods at all.

I fully support all foods to be labeled if GMO or non GMO. People have a right to know this information. Thank you .

@LYNETTE - That is an old rumor from 2011 that continues to go around online. We wrote about the rumors in particular last year on our blog: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/blog/whole-story/gmomonsanto-buyout-rumors-untrue.

Thank God!! It's about time someone does something about labeling GMO ingredients in our food products. I highly doubt the government will pass similar laws any time soon and we need this info to make informed decisions about what we eat. If we will not be given the chance to vote on a ballet about this important issue with help from WFM and companies like it we can vote with our hard earned money. Thank you Whole Foods!

Right on, Whole Foods!! Thank you for this bold move. We need you, who we trust to watch over our food interests, to be the voice in the market place. That's why we spend our dollars with you! GMO's must be labelled so we as consumers can make informed choices. Thank you!

I am very happy to see a store that doesn't support gmos.. I have been telling everyone I knw how bad they are and how there in a lot of the popular brands that you wouldn't think they were in.. I was able to locate a whole foods store near me and will be starting to get all of my food from there. Keep up the good work and you have my support.

Watch for and support a movie coming out called Santo - all about GMO and how it is destroying the USA - because we allow it unlike many countries.

Good Afternoon, Will the non-gmo project include Whole Body items? Gratefully...Roy

@ROY - The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit that verifies products as being non-GMO. They currently do verify bodycare products (http://www.nongmoproject.org/find-non-gmo/search-participating-products/?catID=4). The GMO labeling will include our Whole Body items as well. The Non-GMO Project is one of the ways, in addition to being organic, products can be verified as non-GMO. You can read our most recent update at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/blog/three-month-update-gmo-labeling.

Well considering that 70% of your products have gmo ingredients, I'm not advising to shop at Whole Foods anymore while this shop was for me like a paradise some years back...

Bravo. I only wish you gave a shorter time frame. I hate having to wait 5 years all the while eating unknown food. . .

Very excited to hear this news! I would assume that anyone that shops at Whole foods market ( a store which advertises healthy alternatives to the regular supermarkets) would be happy and expect that this type of grocery store should go the extra mile to make sure that its customers get the healthy food that bring us into your doors , and since gmo's are now a huge concern for so many of us...well, Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you for implementing this new policy. Only wish it could be enforced in a much shorter period of time,as others have stated here.

Thank you Whole Foods for finally taking action on this important issue. It's been too long in coming and taking this action is a job that our government needs to follow! Citizens are demanding safety in our food supply and organic, clean food to eat. So many of us have gotten allergies from the genetic mutations in our foods that it's time to take a stand against Monsanto, Bayer and Dow chemical poisons.Thank you for taking the first step getting GMO's out of our food chain because consumers want healthy food, not frankenfoods! Thank you Whole Foods for finally giving our country the FREEDOM of choice the people want and deserve.
