Genetically Modified Wheat Genetically engineered wheat GM wheat GE wheat monsanto GMO Monsanto biotechAs you may already know, there is movement afoot to introduce genetically modified (GM) wheat into the fields of North America. Last December Monsanto applied to the US and Canadian governments for commercial approval of GM wheat. Despite their assurances that they will not introduce GM wheat until there is market and consumer acceptance they are continuing to push ahead regardless.

Because there is no system in place to segregate GM and non-GM wheat, both conventional and organic farmers will lose their ability to sell their crops. Despite repeated pressure from concerned farmers and consumers, there is no independent process in place to insure that GM wheat is safe for the environment and human consumption. Now is the time for voices to be raised to make sure this vital crop, does not fall prey to Monsanto.

The OCA is currently targeting two companies in North Dakota to supply written pledges that they will not be using GM wheat. Please check back regularly as this list will be expanding.

These two companies in North Dakota are leaders in the U.S. pasta market, Dakota Growers Pasta Company and Bushel 42. No decisions have been made if they will be accepting GM wheat. Both of these companies produce a line of organic pasta.

Genetically Modified Wheat Genetically engineered wheat GM wheat GE wheat monsanto GMO Monsanto biotechPlease call them today and ask them to take a position on GM Wheat. Ask them how they will be able to assure us that their organic pasta, or ANY of their pasta is GM-free.

Please call them and let them know that you do not want them to use GM wheat and that you will refuse to purchase any of their products if GM wheat is used. Ask them for written assurance that they will not be accepting GM wheat for any of their products. Also send this information on to everyone that you know that is interested in protecting family farmers and a safe food supply about this.
