Policy Updates


Genetically Modified Food Policy

At Food Lion, we’re passionate about providing our customers with nutritious and affordable products. We want customers to have confidence in the products we sell and access to foods that fit their dietary needs and lifestyles. Food Lion understands that navigating genetically modified foods (GMOs) can be a complex issue for customers. Our goal is to ensure customers have consistent and easy to read information about GMOs right on products.

As a result, Food Lion is choosing the most transparent labeling option to make it easier for customers to understand what’s included in the products they love by requiring all private Food Lion products to have clear on-pack Bioengineered Food* disclosure. We are working to complete this well ahead of the Federal Bioengineered labeling deadline of January 1, 2022.

Farm Animal Welfare Policy

Food Lion is a passionate supporter of the well-being and welfare of farm animals. We are continuously refining our approach and seeking to improve sustainability and transparency within our supply chain. Food Lion looks to partner with suppliers who are committed to sound, science-based animal care practices and the elimination of animal cruelty, abuse and neglect. We believe that an animal's welfare at all phases of its life should be considered in terms of the globally recognized “five freedoms” of animal welfare.
