GMO Inside, a campaign of national nonprofit Green America, issued the following statement:
"We applaud Whole Foods' decision to drop Chobani yogurts from its shelves. GMO Inside first sounded the alarm about the presence of GMO feed in the milk found in Chobani products in summer 2013. Since then, 20,000 consumers have taken action to urge Chobani to drop GMOs from its supply chain, and posted comments on Chobani's Facebook page.
GMO Inside encourages consumers to seek out the growing range of non-GMO and organic yogurts and is pleased that Whole Foods will be making more space available on its shelves for these options, particularly when it concerns GMO animal feed in dairy operations. This announcement is further proof that consumer demand is being reflected in the marketplace when it comes to non-GMO alternatives."
Tell Chobani to get GMOs out of its dairy operations here.
