Farm Bureau supports Senate Ag Committee Chairman Pat Roberts’ biotech labeling proposal, introduced on Friday, February 18, 2016.
“Farmers and ranchers need innovative tools, technologies and improved methods to meet the demand for food, today and in the future,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall in a statement. He noted that Farm Bureau strongly supports Roberts’ solution and action to secure uniform, voluntary biotech labeling standards across the country.
“We stand ready to work with Chairman Roberts, the members of his committee and the rest of Congress to legislate a solution that provides helpful and scientifically accurate information about the food we grow and enables farmers to meet the demand and desire for affordable food choices for all consumers,” Duvall said.
