Gentech department BASF retreats from Europe

The multinational chemical company BASF announced on January 16th to halt any developments and marketing of genetically modified plants in Europe. They stated that the resistance against GMO’s is too great.
BASF focused especially on the developments of potatoes on the European market. It seems that their plans within the Netherlands have also come to a halt, regarding the Amflora potato (production of propagating material) and the development of Modena together with Dutch starch cooperative AVEBE. The approval process of the GM consumption potato Fortuna will be finished and include a field trial in Dinteloord (NL) and in Sweden and Germany as well.

Succesfull sticker action ‘GM chips won’t touch my lips’ continues

Hundreds of stickers with the message “I don’t eat GM chips” have been spread throughout The Netherlands between September 29 and October 7. The sticker action week against GM potatoes took place parallel to the annual Week of Taste, which’ central theme this year was the potato.

Even the WUR agriculture university in Wageningen was not spared. Apparently the GE projects of BASF and WUR leave not only us with sour taste and many do not hide their resentment. But unfortunately the message has not came across well yet, as the most recent permit for even more BASF field trials for 2013 illustrate. So GM protests go on and we call everybody to join our sticker and protest card action “GM chips won’t touch my lips”. Continue reading to find out how, and where.
