Campaign Update

A message from ACB

Firstly, a big thanks to those of you that signed ACB’s petition to the CEOs of the big food companies to say to no to GMOs in our foods.  To those of you that haven’t, we’d like to urge you to please do so as soon as possible as we will be closing off the petition soon. The petition can be signed here: http://www.acbio.org.za/activist/index.php?m=u&f=dsp&petitionID=5 

We’ve been very heartened by the response to our releasing the results of the tests showing GM soya in the soya flour used in white breads.  As you may recall, the test results revealed varying levels of GM soya, going as high as 91%, across all the white bread brands available on the supermarket shelves.  So many consumers took it upon themselves to take on the food producers in demanding GM free food now.  We’ve been further encouraged by some consumers success in getting their local stores to provide a GM free bread, showing once again that consumers have immense power if they use it.

You can access the full bread report  GM Contamination, Cartels and Collusion in South Africa’s Bread Industry, highlighting that just four companies – Tiger Brands, Pioneer Foods, Premier Foods and FoodCorp – control 70% of the wheat-to-bread value chain from http://tinyurl.com/oe4cnxl and read the related press releaseat http://tinyurl.com/q99gvsb.

Once again thank you for your support and for signing the petition.

Kind Regards

Mariam and Zakiyya
