Australia’s Status as World Leader in Organic to be Irreversibly Undermined

Letter to Parliamentarians on gene editing methods - 8 September 2019

The following letter has been sent to key ALP shadow ministers and Senators in advance of a vote on disallowing the Government's deregulation of gene editing methods.

 

8 September 2019

Dear Senator

Our organic industry is deeply concerned that the Australian Government’s gene technology deregulation will compromise certified organic exports to the European Union and China, and will erode consumer confidence in Australian food producers and manufacturers.

These trading partners do not tolerate any risk of contamination from genetically modified (GM) products in their organic imports.
