  • Don’t we have a right to know what’s in our food? You might think so, but most Arizona residents haven’t been told about some of the ingredients that are in the foods they eat.
  • So how about you? Do you want foods to be labeled if they contain Genetically Engineered (GE) ingredients?
  • The fact is, that without labeling of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) foods, we cannot make informed choices about our food.
  • Corn, Soybeans and Cotton – are three major Genetically Engineered (GE) crops grown in the U.S., all of which have entered the food supply at an increasingly rapid pace.
  • Despite the fact that many people want Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) to be labeled, we still don't have that right here in Arizona -- yet.
  • Which is why we invite you to join our efforts here at Right To Know Arizona. Get involved in our campaign for a GMO labeling initiative on the November 2014 ballot.

Our Mission

At Right To Know Arizona:

We believe in the importance of labeling genetically modified organisms (GMOs), educating consumers about the potential health hazards of GMO foods and how to avoid eating GMOs by supporting local organic farming and finding non-GMO choices in our local grocery stores.
