Unilever vs. Ben & Jerry's in Battle Over GMO Labeling

by TheStreet 1:40 mins

An internal battle between Unilever and subsidiary Ben & Jerry's may be forming, sparked by the debate about labeling food made with ingredients from genetically modified organisms. Unilever has opposed state-by-state GMO labeling laws, supporting campaigns aimed at defeating an initiative in California, while Ben & Jerry's has been an open proponent of such laws in its headquarters' state of Vermont. Erin Lash, senior equity analyst at Morningstar, says she doesn't expect Unilever's stance on the issue to negatively impact the company and she doesn't believe it will changing its position anytime soon.
