With more than 20,000 retail locations throughout the world, Starbucks is a company uniquely positioned to trigger major supply-chain shifts when it makes changes to the products in its stores.

That's why Green America's GMO Inside campaign is calling on Starbucks to switch to serving all-organic dairy products.

Such a switch would be consistent with other recent changes in Starbucks products.  For example, in 2008, in response to consumer and investor concerns, Starbucks committed to source only rBGH-free milk (milk from cows not injected with growth hormones).  Plus, Starbucks already serves soy milk that is organic and non-GMO; we want their dairy milk held to the same standard.

Tell Starbucks you want only organic milk from cows raised on non-GMO feed »

Because Pret-a-Manger, another quick-service food and coffee chain, serves organic milk and sells coffee at competitive prices, we believe Starbucks can also do the right thing, and help shift more US agriculture --  the corn, soy, alfalfa, and cottonseed used to feed dairy cows -- to organic.
