Beyonce: Tell Pepsi to stop blocking GMO labels
Pepsi Co. spent 2.3 million dollars last year blocking GMO labels. At the same time, many of Pepsi's brands, like Naked Juice and Tropicana are packaged as environmentally and health conscious. As Pepsi Co.'s top celebrity sponsor, Beyonce Knowles has an enormous level of influence on Pepsi.
Beyonce cares deeply about what is in her food, frequently showing off her vegan diet on the popular social media site Instagram. In addition, Beyonce is a major philanthropist, who donates to many charities involved in providing children access to healthy foods.
The vast majority of Americans support GMO labels, however, giant food companies like Pepsi, Smucker's and others have spent millions of dollars to successfully scuttle major GMO labeling initiatives.
With enough public support we can convince Beyonce who is most likely already very supportive of GMO labels to tell Pepsi Co. to stop blocking GMO labeling.
