Coke spends big against your right to know

Tell Coca-Cola to Stop Funding Anti-Labeling Campaigns



What do Monsanto and Coke have in common? They’ve both spent millions of dollars to keep you in the dark about the foods you buy.

After the narrow defeat of a ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods in Washington State the public learned that Coca-Cola had secretly contributed more than $1.5 million to the campaign against GE labeling in the state. Coca-Cola also contributed more than $1.7 million to defeat GE labeling in California the year before, making the company one of the largest contributors to the defeat of state labeling efforts.

More than a quarter of a million people have joined us in pressuring Coke to stop funding opposition to state labeling initiatives, and to get on the side of consumers in supporting national, mandatory labeling for genetically engineered foods. But now Coke has spent more than they ever have—over $2 million—to fund the opposition in Oregon and Colorado.


Sign the petition to tell Coca-Cola to stop funding efforts to block the labeling of genetically engineered foods:
