retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Boston Globe reports that Maine Gov. Paul LePage has signed a bill that will require the labeling of all products that contain genetically modified ingredients.

However, the law only "will only go into effect if other Northeastern states approve similar measures."

Maine is the second northeastern state to pass such legislation. Connecticut passed a similar bill last year.

The bill was opposed by the Maine Grocers Association, and supported by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association.
KC's View:
I know that I may not be in the majority on this one, but I think this is a good thing. And perhaps even more important, it is going to be the trend.

In the end, transparency wins.
