EU governments are being held back from testing imports of soybeans and rapeseed from North America for GMOs because the European Commission has failed to develop testing methods. This is putting our food and farming at risk, according to new research released today.

Genetically modified (GM) crops bring unnecessary risks to both humans and nature. They increase the corporate control of the food chain, whilst placing heavy economic burdens upon conventional and organic food sectors aiming to avoid contamination.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns for food and farming free from GM crops. We push for solutions that provide livelihoods and healthy food for people, protect our biodiversity, and don't pollute the environment. We aim to make sure GMOs and big business stay out of our food chain and our fields.
