Canola in Australia

GM canola was grown in Australia for the first time in 2008. GM and non-GM canola were separated in 2009 but this adds extra costs and difficulties for farmers and suppliers. GM and non-GM canola were mixed after harvest in November 2009. Ring supermarkets and food companies to ask that they only use non-GM canola in their homebrands and in the products they stock.

Get food manufacturers to keep canola GM free

Goodman Fielder and Unilever are two of Australia's biggest food companies and buy much of the canola grown in Australia. Please ask them to use only GM free canola.
