Letter written to Freedom Foods, reproduced below:
Just thought I’d mention: I ran into your products in a store. Nutritionally they were exactly what I was looking for, except.
Except they contain no genetically-modified organisms. This is exactly saying “These products destroy the environment.” Non-GMO crops offer no nutritional or health advantage, but need more cropland to grow the same amount. By excluding GMO crops you are quite literally helping to destroy the wild and uncultivated lands, while forcing the use of more pesticides and fertilizers.
So I can’t, in good conscience, buy your products.
Please do the right thing and use GMO crops.
Note to other food sellers: this is a policy. I can’t help you destroy the world by promoting pointlessly inefficient agriculture.
