GMO: Your Right to Know
At Whole Foods Market, we believe you have the right to know what’s in your food.
We’ve committed to labeling all food products in our US and Canadian stores to indicate whether they contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) by 2018. Many are already labeled and many more will be labeled ahead of this deadline.
Currently, we offer over 25,000 certified organic products and about 8500 Non-GMO Project Verified products in our stores.* (Organic items must be non-GMO to be certified.)
We are the first national grocery chain to set a deadline for full GMO transparency and our GMO labeling go further than the state laws and initiatives for labeling that are pending. This means we are the first to do a lot of this work and will be paving the way for those who follow.
In this section, you can learn more about GMOs, pick up shopping tips if avoiding GMOs, check out our FAQ, delve into the details of the work we are doing and geek out on the labeling requirements for our vendors.
*Our product mix varies from store to store, so not all products will be available in all stores.
