Farm Bureau Statement on USDA Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard

Newsroom / December 20, 2018

The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“The rule is a victory not only for consumers who want transparency but for the entire food value chain, from the farmer to food manufacturers. It provides clarity to the marketplace so that consumers can make informed decisions on the issues that matter to them, and protects the innovation that is critical to the sustainability of agriculture. Secretary Perdue and Undersecretary Ibach should be commended for this rule, which follows the intent of Congress while protecting future agricultural innovation.”
