Food Company Adapts To Vermont GMO Labeling Law

June 1, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Woodinville, Wash.-based Conifer Specialties, the maker of Fisher Scones, has decided to label its food products with information about the possibility of genetically modified ingredients. The move comes just a few weeks before a Vermont law requiring such labeling goes into effect on July 1. Conifer does not sell its three product lines – Fisher Scones, Canterbury Naturals and Crock-Pot Delicious Dinner – in Vermont. But CEO Mike Maher worries that lawyers may try to add Conifer to a class action lawsuit. The company will spend “in the six figures” to get its products non-GMO verified and, in the interim, to change packaging to acknowledge the possibility of GMO content.
