Guest: Dave Murphy – Food Democracy Now’s Update On GMO Labeling, Wheat And More

This week on Food Nation Radio Network, we spoke with Dave Murphy from Food Democracy Now about state GMO labeling efforts, America’s wheat farmers and the King Amendment to the Farm Bill.

About Dave Murphy: Dave Murphy is the founder and executive director of Food Democracy Now!, a grassroots movement of more than 650,000 American farmers and citizens dedicated to reforming policies relating to food, agriculture and the environment. Murphy has been called “the most crucial and politically savvy actor in the on-going efforts to help move American agriculture into the 21st century” as a result of his “Sustainable Dozen” campaign, which resulted in four candidates being placed in high level positions at the USDA and his efforts to reform food and agriculture under the Obama administration.
