Organic Elite Surrenders to Monsanto
| January 27, 2011 | organicconsumers.org |
In the wake of a 12-year battle to keep Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation’s 25,000 organic farms and ranches, America’s organic consumers and producers are facing betrayal.
A self-appointed cabal of the Organic Elite, spearheaded by Whole Foods Market, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farm, has decided it’s time to surrender to Monsanto.
Top executives from these companies have publicly admitted that they no longer oppose the mass commercialization of GE crops, such as Monsanto’s controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa, and are prepared to sit down and cut a deal for “coexistence” with Monsanto and USDA biotech cheerleader Tom Vilsack.

This explosive exposé reveals what the biotech industry doesn’t want you to know:
how industry manipulation and political collusion, not sound science,
allow dangerous genetically engineered food into your daily diet.

An unflattering look inside America’s corporate controlled food industry.
“The companies keep the farmers under their thumb because of the debt that the farmers have.
To build one poultry house is anywhere from 280,000 to 300,000 dollars per house,
and once you make your initial investment, the companies constantly come back
with demands of upgrades for new equipment and the grower has no choice
they have to do it or you’re threatened with loss of a contract.
This is how they keep the farmers under control, it’s how they keep them spending money,
going to the bank and borrowing more money…
and the debt just keeps building.
To have no say in your business… and it’s degrading…
it’s like being a slave to the company.”
