Want to know if your food is genetically modified?

Want to know if your food is genetically modified?

So do we – yet the Productivity Commission thinks our right to know what is in our food should be removed. Over 90% of shoppers want GM labels. They are not ‘red tape’!

The Productivity Commission also recommends that state powers to ban GM crops be lifted. Lifting the state bans would mean any GM crop, animal or microbe approved by the Federal Government – such as GM wheat - could be grown anywhere without any other approval. Without GM labels we won’t know if we are eating GM products.

Take action

The Productivity Commission needs to hear from you, so please write a short letter, defending GM food labels and the rights of states to stay GM-free. The GM seed and food industry had their say in the report and now it’s our turn!
