UK: GM Crops May Contaminate Honey

Government's GM Exclusion Zone 'Pathetic'

Friends of the Earth today described new quarantine zones around GM crops trials as “pathetically inadequate”.

The Government was forced to review the separation distances around GM crops following concerns that GM pollen might contaminate conventional and organic crops and honey. . .

Adrian Bebb, GM campaigner at Friends of the Earth said:

“Once again the Government has shown reckless arrogance over the dangers of GM crops.The public have made it perfectly clear that they do not want GM food. This announcement shows that the Government cares more about the interests of the biotech industry than it does about consumer choice. The livelihoods of conventional and organic farmers and beekeepers around the country who wish to produce GM-free food are now at risk.”

This is Hungarian acacia honey packed in Spain. Acacia Honey is clear, transparent golden liquid that literally shines like a precious stone. Its bouquet is as bright as its color. Its texture and flavor are ethereal, ambrosia-like finishing with a haunting floral note. It is one of the mildest honey in the world.
