National Food Strategy
24 Oct 2019
GM Freeze submission to the open Call for Evidence for the proposed new National Food Strategy, in which we propose:
- High standards achieved through robust regulation of the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
- Informed choice through clear consumer labelling and meaningful public engagement that values lay contributions and incorporates social, ethical and economic impacts alongside scientific analysis.
- Value and protect genetic diversity by discouraging monoculture and opposing the patenting of genetic resources.
- Address root problems within the food and farming system, rather than treating the symptoms.
