GMOs Our vision is of European food and farming free from GM crops and corporate control

27 August 2015

The European Commission is bowing to pressure from large biotech companies to minimise the level of health and safety checks on imports of genetically modified (GM) crops, Friends of the Earth Europe has learned.

Genetically modified (GM) crops bring unnecessary risks to both humans and nature. They increase the corporate control of the food chain, whilst placing heavy economic burdens upon conventional and organic food sectors aiming to avoid contamination.


Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns for food and farming free from GM crops. We push for solutions that provide livelihoods and healthy food for people, protect our biodiversity, and don't pollute the environment. We aim to make sure GMOs and big business stay out of our food chain and our fields.
