Nestle Quits Grocery Manufacturers Association group

GMA spent more than $6 million lobbying last year on issues including disclosure of genetically engineered (GMO) ingredients

Nestle spoke person Roger Lowe said “Nestle is leaving the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), a lobby group that represents hundreds of food companies in Washington. It will leave at year-end. The move comes during a tumultuous time for food manufacturers facing new labelling requirements and squeezed margins as consumers shun conventional packaged food. Nestle's participation in GMA will be missed, and we hope there will be a time when they will rejoin us.”

GMA spent more than $6 million lobbying last year on issues including disclosure of genetically engineered (GMO) ingredients and an overhaul of nutrition labelling requirements, according to congressional filings.

Companies including Nestle have taken differing positions from the GMA on some of those issues, wanting to placate consumers who say they want more transparency and information about supply chains. Where GMA lobbied heavily against labelling of GMO, Nestle has publicly supported disclosure of those ingredients.
