Who Supported Prop 37 And Who Fought Against It May Surprise You

As we reported this morning, California voters rejected Proposition 37, the ballot measure that would have required the labeling of genetically engineered food. Supporters believed the initiative would prevent a misleading use of the word "natural" on foods that have been modified in a lab. What may surprise you is which food companies hopped on board with the efforts--and which did not. 

Advocacy group Cornucopia Institute created a chart detailing the contributions of companies on both sides of Prop 37, as listed by the California Secretary of State. Fighting against the measure were a number of popular, so-called health brands--Naked, Silk, Kashi, Odwalla--owned by corporate giants such as Coca-Cola and Kellogg. 

Check out the chart:
