I hope this is a sign governments are coming to their senses and Crops, Fish, Livestock and Poultry will be spared from the Genetic Modifying scientist butchers knife.
Scotland was known around the world for its “beautiful natural environment” and banning the growing of genetically modified crops would protect and further enhance its “clean, green status”.
Richard Lochhead said “There is no evidence of significant demand for GM products by Scottish consumers and I am concerned that allowing GM crops to be grown in Scotland would damage our clean and green brand, thereby gambling with the future of our £14bn ($21bn) food and drink sector.”
Scottish food and drink is valued at home and abroad for its natural, high quality which often attracts a premium price, and I have heard directly from food and drink producers in other countries that are ditching GM because of a consumer backlash.
