What are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)? Why are they considered risky and unsustainable? Since GM foods aren’t labeled, how are consumers supposed to avoid them when shopping and eating out?
Join Fairfield Green Food Guide founder Analiese Paik for a lively, informative, and interactive 1-hour session that answers all these questions and empowers guests to make Non-GMO food choices at home, at the grocery store, in restaurants, and at the farmers’ market.
Editor’s Note: A fellow Right to Know CT member contacted Trader Joe’s corporate headquarters and secured this email stating their stance on GMOs in their private label products and protocol for ensuring the veracity of their non-GMO claims.
