The J.M. Smucker Company is committed to complying with federal GMO labeling regulations, specifically the Bioengineered Foods Disclosure Act. These regulations will require labeling of foods that contain bioengineered (GMO) ingredients. Disclosure must be through text, a symbol, or a scannable code, such as a SmartLabel™ QR code. Once the government has fully developed the language and guidelines for labeling, Smucker will implement these requirements across all products with genetically modified ingredients.
