Organic Labeling Too Confusing?

Apr 26, 2013

Vermont consumers need to be better informed about which foods are organic and which aren't. That was the upshot of a Senate Agriculture Hearing today that looked at the problem of confusing labeling on products sold in stores and at farmers' markets. Senator David Zuckerman is an organic farmer and he says confusion often arises when organic farms expand into non-organic products. The organic certifying group Vermont Organic Farmers says it is stepping up efforts to educate farmers about good labeling practices.
