The first-ever crop of genetically modified canola grown in Australia will be harvested this October - and canola oil finds its way into a huge range of common foods. Such products are already either banned or clearly labelled in Europe.
But with no comprehensive requirement for GM products to be labelled in Australia, we will be denied the choice as to whether or not we buy these unnatural foods for our families.
Time is of the essence, but together we can still make GM labelling a reality. In April 2007, the Labor Party’s national conference passed a motion in favor of labelling. Now they’re in government, let's push them over the finish line to make their policy reality, in law.
Greenpeace has organised a petition to Federal Health Minister, Nicola Roxon. You can read more about GM labelling and sign the petition at:
