Target: Walt Freese, Stonyfield CEO
Goal: Commend Stonyfield on its GMO-free Products
Dairy Company Stonyfield has made a point in the fight against GMOs by recently stating that all of its products are GMO-free. Support and commend the company for a job well done. While other food companies have not taken a stand on the issue and continue to produce and sell GMO products, Stonyfield continues to do the exact opposite.
With headline stories of GMOs and the trouble that comes with them, Stonyfield has switched up the bad news with a commendable act. Stonyfield has stated that its company employs farmers who do not harvest GMO crops and do not feed their cows GMO crops either. By signing the following petition letter, you will commend and support Stonyfield and its products. With most U.S. states lacking labeling GMO products, consumers can rely on Stonyfield’s organic and non-GMO foods.
Companies such as Whole Foods, previously known for a healthy image, sell many foods that contain GMOs. Whole Foods recently advocated for deregulation of GMO alfalfa. Though Stonyfield is not a grocery company, none of its products contain a trace of GMOs, and the company should be commended on it.
Dear Mr. Freese,
Thank you for vocally taking a stand against GMOs by stating that you are a GMO-free company. Your consumers and supporters of the movement against GMO crops support your decision. By creating a product that is GMO-free, consumers can continue to rely on a naturally good product. With most U.S. states lacking labeling GMO products, consumers can know and rely on Stonyfield’s organic and non-GMO foods.
As you said, in eating dairy products we eat what cows eat. That is why it is important to feed livestock non-GMO products and we could not be more in agreement. As other companies falter on their support of organic and non-GMO crops, you have stayed true to products that just don’t mix with GMOs. With headline stories of GMOs and the trouble that comes with them, Stonyfield has risen above it with good news. Thank you for employing farmers who do not harvest GMO crops and do not feed their cows GMO crops either. And most of all, thank you for staying GMO-free.
As consumers, we will continue to support your company as long as you remain GMO-free. We urge you to continue to remain GMO free and voice your opinion on the topic. Please take notice of your customers who purchase your product, because of it being GMO-free as well as other reasons. Thank you for your products and statements, which we commend you on.
[Your Name Here]
