[NaturalNews] While $2.6 million had been raised so far supporting Prop 37, a whopping $23.5 million (for visual purpose: $23,000,000 dollars) has been donated to fighting Prop 37. Biotech giant Monsanto donated $4,208,000 alone. Here is a short list of the top deep-pocket anti-labelers and their respected donations:

Monsanto – $4,208,000
Pepsi Co. – $1,716,300
Coca Cola – $1,164,400
Congara – $1,076,300
Kellogg – $632,500
General Mills – $520,000

[Others; Kashi, Cascadian Farm, and Santa Cruz Organic are actually child companies of giants like Kellogg, General Mills, and Smucker – all of which are against GMO labeling.]

It may be surprising for those just getting into the organic lifestyle to see Many companies selling organic products are actually owned by multi-national corporations; companies like Kashi, Cascadian Farm, and Santa Cruz Organic are actually child companies of giants like Kellogg, General Mills, and Smucker – all of which are against GMO labeling.

While these corporations are dumping millions of dollars to ensure the public doesn’t know about GMOs, millions of people are seeing who they truly are. Such publicity will only result in the massive loss of customers and an eventual disintegration of power. These corporations are trying to keep GMOs hidden from the public eye – it is time we stop supporting these companies, and spend our dollars with trusted companies.

Check out the following poster from activistpost.com to find out which companies are on what side – and you may be surprised to see which so-called “eco-friendly” companies have put millions into toward stopping GMO labeling.

[Butchered from TakePart] On the no-surprise side of contributions to the Coalition Against the Deceptive Food Labeling Scheme, which opposes Proposition 37, were pro-GMO seed companies like DuPont Pioneer, which donated $2.4 million; Bayer Crop Science at $1,064,000; and BASF Plant Science, which donated just under $1 million.

Also on the we’re-not-surprised-to-see-you-here list, we have $500,000 donations by PepsiCo, Nestle USA, Coca-Cola North America, ConAgra Foods, and General Mills.
Candy company W.M. Wrigley, Jr. Co. tossed in $116,865. Mars Food North America, makers of brands like Snickers, 3 Musketeers, M&Ms, and Uncle Ben’s rice products, donated $100,242. Hershey’s Company threw in $102,906 to defeat the measure, far more than Godiva Chocolatier, which donated $11,121. Jam and jelly maker JM Smucker Company, on the other hand, gave a substantial $367,604, making clear the company’s stance on the initiative.

Sunny Delight, Kellogg Company, Bumble Bee Foods, Bimbo Bakeries, Campbell Soup, Land O’Lakes, Hormel Foods, Dole Packaged Foods, Del Monte Foods, Ocean Spray Cranberries—all funded the coalition to defeat Prop. 37 as well.

And then there was Knouse Foods. We didn’t recognize their name at first either. It turns out they’re a 50-year-old grower-owned cooperative that makes applesauce and apple juice under the Musselman’s, Lucky Leaf, Apple Time, Lincoln, and Speas Farm brand names.

Even companies like Morningstar, of which many vegetarians and vegans consume their products, is full of GMO, and I have heard that they too, are fighting labeling… you must go through their FAQ online to find the truth; if your in a store staring at the garbage on the shelf, then good luck:

If you consume genetically engineered food, in the end, are they not genetically engineering YOU?
While the huge unethical corporations have the money to throw around, the fight lies with you… all the money companies like Monsanto and PepsiCo are spending is aimed to influence you.  If you like you and your family being a guinea pig and not knowing what science experiment lies in your food, then by all means, buy their propaganda.  If you feel you have a right to know what it is you buy, as a consumer, and want your children or other people and things you love to live in a world with natural food, the choice is clear.   
Proposition 37 and GMO labeling must be passed and enforced.
