Andrew Kimbrell

Founder and Executive Director, Center for Food Safety

If you’re putting a new product on a market with novel proteins that have never before been in that food, that it is your burden, not the burden of others to prove it safe.

Andrew Kimbrell firmly believes that mandatory labeling is the only responsible way to bring GMOs to the market. As Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Food Safety, Kimbrell has served as a leading public interest attorney in the fight to protect the environment. CFS uses legal actions, groundbreaking scientific and policy reports, market pressure, and grassroots campaigns to curb the use of harmful food production techniques.

Kimbrell is the author of Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food. Kimbrell earned a spot on Utne Reader’s list of the world's leading 100 visionaries, and The Guardian recognized him in 2008 as one of the 50 people who could save the planet.
