Capitol Hill businesses support I-522 - The Capitol Hill Times

Capitol Hill businesses support I-522 - The Capitol Hill Times: "This week Capitol Hill’s Central Co-Op on East Madison Street endorsed I-522, the initiative that, if passed, will require corporations to label genetically modified foods. More than 553,000 Washingtonians signed a petition to have I-522 added to legislature, and the fall ballot is fast approaching.

Hundreds of farmers, as well as dozens of fishers and seafood companies, the Washington Nurses Association, and the community at large, support 522, and believe in a shopper’s right to know the content of the groceries that they’re buying. Besides a swell of restaurants, other supportive organizations throughout Seattle include PCC Natural Markets and Whole Foods. The only obvious opponents are big food corporations that have money on the line, not wanting labels to discourage shoppers from buying their products. "
