The American Soybean Association wants to see the GMO labeling debate move towards a certification model that has worked in areas such as organic food.
Wade Cowan, president of ASA and a farmer from Brownfield, Texas, told reporters at Commodity Classic in Phoenix that ASA is going to couch all of its arguments in a positive light. He said this will be apparent in ASA's new stance on biotech labeling.
"For too long organizations in ag have said 'Don't do this. Don't do this.' Now we would like to present the consumer community with a positive outreach," Cowan said.
