AFFI Joins Coalition for Safe Affordable Food


Published:

The American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI) announced that it will partner with the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food, a newly-launched, broad-based coalition led by the Grocery Manufacturers Association and National Corn Growers Association, to advocate for a federal labeling solution for food products made with genetically-enhanced ingredients.

AFFI and its coalition partners are seeking the enactment of federal legislation that creates a voluntary program, administered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to evaluate food labels that claim the presence, or absence, of genetically-enhanced ingredients.

“AFFI is pleased to join the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food and looks forward to working with our coalition partners and lawmakers in support of a responsible and effective federal labeling program that prevents the creation of a complicated patchwork of state-based labeling rules that would increase, rather than reduce, consumer confusion,” said AFFI President and CEO Kraig R. Naasz.
