Let them eat . . .
As reported in the March 2000 issue of 'Soybean Digest' -
The American Soybean Asociation (ASA) is extremely concerned about the
potential implications resulting from the removal of genetically modified
soybean and corn products from the staff cafeteria of Monsanto's High
Wycombe headquarters near London, United Kingdom.
ASA President Marc Curtis contacted Monsanto President Hendrik Verfaille
expressing concern of soybean farmers and asking that the company
aggressively pursue this issue with outside contractor Granada Food
Services to work out a solution that supports the use of seedstock and
food enhanced through biotechnology.
In the event that the food service company is unwilling to amend its
policy as as to provide Monsanto employees with the opportunity to
consume the products of biotechnology, then the ASA is recommending that
Monsanto seek a new food service company to make an example of those who
would undermine the public's perception of biotechnology.
