Great question. There is a belief that Monsanto won’t serve GM foods—or that we serve only organic food—in our cafeterias. It’s a myth that started back in 1999 and continues today. In reality, all types of foods can be found in our cafeterias. These are the same foods that we purchase at grocery stores for our families, and the same foods that everyone else eats. Sometimes we have special menu items that feature our products. For example, in summer 2012 we held a special event for employees to taste our GM sweet corn from a customer’s farm.
