Commend Removal of Genetically Modified Ingredients from Cheerios


Target: General Mills CEO Ken Powell

Goal: Applaud General Mills for their positive efforts in removing genetically modified ingredients in Cheerios, and encourage them to keep making progressive steps

The renowned food brand, General Mills, has recently announced plans to remove genetically modified ingredients from the popular cereal Cheerios.

In the past several years there have been several studies that display the risks of genetically modified crops when consumed by humans. Studies also suggest that the chemicals used to create genetically modified crops present environmental issues. Activists and experts on the topic have been urging that manufacturers refrain from using these products in an attempt to create more safe and wholesome food, and preserve the environment.

General Mills made the decision to remove these items from food in hopes that it could increase customer trust in loyalty in a progressive era with a negative spotlight on additives in food. This is a wise decision as it gives a positive reputation to an already reputable brand. It may also encourage other manufacturers to take similar steps to keep up with General Mills and other competitors. This type of trend could potentially create much safer and nutritious food for consumers.

Please sign the petition below to applaud General Mills for removing genetically modified ingredients from Cheerios.


Dear General Mills CEO, Ken Powell,

Thank you for your recent decision to refrain from using genetically modified ingredients in Cheerios. For many years it has been suggested that genetically modified ingredients create hazards to both consumers and the environment. Your positive efforts will help make a difference in reducing the use of these ingredients.

As a large manufacturer, you are very reputable and regarded highly by other companies. Your actions could cause other manufacturers to make similar positive advancements to keep up with the trends. It is through processes such as these that genetically modified ingredients will be greatly reduced and the quality of food will improve immensely.

We also encourage you to take steps towards making your products more healthy and safe for your consumers, as it will improve the health of humans and the relationship between you and your consumers. Thank you again.
