Global GMO Free Coalition launched

First globally coordinated network to address GM food and crop industry in media, public and government advocacy areas

The Global GMO Free Coalition launched on May 20, 2014, bringing together GMO Free groups across six continents with a partner membership of more than 4.5 million people.

The Global GMO Free Coalition, with more than 60 partner organizations, is the first globally coordinated network to address the genetically modified (GM) food and crop industry in both the media and in public and government advocacy areas. The aim of the coalition is "to cut through biotech industry propaganda and to provide independent information that leads to responsible actions from food regulatory bodies in countries worldwide," according to organizers.

The coalition will provide journalists and governments worldwide with a source of independent information. Journalists will be welcomed to contact the coalition 24 hours a day for quotes and reactions from the top global experts in the field of GMOs. The Coalition will also coordinate expert speakers to attend public and private events wherever they are held around the globe. These speakers will present sustainable alternatives to GMOs.

The Global GMO Free Coalition partners are from countries around the world, including the US, UK, Russia, Iran, Chile, Taiwan, the Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, New Caledonia, Ghana, Georgia and Ireland.
