GMOs Our vision is of European food and farming free from GM crops and corporate control

30 March 2017

Friends of the Earth Europe staged a 'marriage made in hell' outside the European Commission headquarters in Brussels today to symbolise the threat to food and farming posed by the planned merger of the agriculture and chemical companies Bayer and Monsanto.

More than 200 organisations have today raised their objections to the planned mergers of six giant agriculture corporations.

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.
