The re-authorisation is being sought by the Glyphosate Task Force (GTF), an industry platform uniting producers of glyphosate-based herbicides, whose members include Monsanto, Dow Agrosciences, Syngenta, and Barclay Chemicals. Richard Garnett, a lobbyist for Monsanto Europe, is chair of the Glyphosate Task Force.
The report from Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) and Earth Open Source questions the independence of the European Food Safety Authority. The report explains how EFSA works, what science is used, how conflicts of interest occur, and how industry influences the agency’s work. The report aims to contribute to the debate on what changes are needed in the interest of food safety, public health and the environment.
About the Stop the Crop campaign
This website and film present some of the dangers of GM-crops, and call for people across Europe and beyond to take action to stop them. We need a future of food and farming that benefits people and planet, and not the pockets of big business. We need to stop GM-crops from spreading across Europe. You can sign up for updates and alerts opposite.
