We – the European GMO-Free Citizens and the Ekopark Foundation in Lelystad (the
Netherlands) – do not wish to eat this genetically modified maize. We want to eat unsprayed food that has not been genetically manipulated. This is also better for the environment.
Nor do we want genetically modified maize as animal feed. And we do not want you to put it
back on the EU market. If you were to approve it (which we would regret), we would want
every product and every end product to be labelled as a GMO, even if GMOs can no longer be detected in an end product.
