There's no company as uniformly hated around the world as Monsanto (NYSE: MON ) . Whether that distinction is deserved is up for each reader to determine. The company is the face of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs -- crops that are designed in a lab to withstand extreme weather conditions, pests, and treatment by some chemicals.
For the first time in a while, Monsanto and its fellow GMO peers have been winning the public-relations battle. But in an odd way, this string of wins might actually help organic grocers such as Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM ) and Sprouts Farmers Markets (NASDAQ: SFM ) . Motley Fool contributor Brian Stoffel tells us what the past few months have revealed, and why these grocers could benefit.
