More GMO Woes
The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network has a campaign to try and stop Lantic-Rogers Sugar from using GM sugar beets in their product.
From the CBAN site:
Keep Canadian Sugar GM-Free!
Canadian company Lantic/Rogers Sugar needs to reject Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) sugar beet and stay GM-Free. Lantic Inc. is the only Canadian sugar company that processes sugar beet and it is the last GM-Free sugar beet processing company in North America. It is deciding now if it will accept GM sugar beets for the first time - the beets will be planted in April! (www.lantic.ca)
