General Mills revealed last week that the company will label all of its products in accordance with the Vermont labeling law taking effect in July. General Mills CEO Jeff Harmening made the announcement just two days after a Senate bill to ban state labeling laws failed to get the 60 votes needed to invoke cloture. Harmening wrote that, as discussion continues in Washington, food production companies, such as General Mills, must work to comply with the Vermont law or face significant fines.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitterlast_img
