Starbucks is supporting Monsanto in its pursuit of a lawsuit against the state of Vermont.
Last spring, Vermont passed a law that will require all products containing GMOs to be properly labeled by July 1, 2016, with the exception of dairy products, meat, alcohol and food served in restaurants. This law has already received backlash from companies and organizations that support the sale of GM products, including Monsanto.
By announcing its support of Monsanto, Starbucks has also announced its support of this lawsuit. It is possible that this is due to the presence of GMOs in its food and drinks. Starbucks offers soymilk as a non-dairy alternative, and soy is one of the most genetically engineered products available. In 2011, approximately 94 percent of the American soy crop contained GMOs, according to the Non-GMO Project.
