Monsanto retreats from GM launch in Europe

Reading time: 1 minute

If you live in Europe, you are today far less likely ever to eat GM (genetically-modified) food. Monsanto, the bio-tech conglomerate that pioneers GM, has given up on its plans to introduce the crops throughout the region.
Consumer campaigns have forced Monsanto to withdraw all requests to the EU to grow GM corn, sugar beet and soya beans. The crops would have been used as ingredients for foods and would also have been included in feeds given to cattle we would have eaten.
Monsanto says it will concentrate on its standard crops and weed killers for European farms. Its withdrawal has sent a message to the agri-business, and other companies, such as Bayer, Syngenta and BASF, are also considering the future of their GM products in Europe.
