Plataforma Transgénicos Fora (No GMO Coalition) needs your support to create the portuguese GMO Free Label - an ambicious system that will garantee consumers that products identified with the GMO Free Label don't use GMOs.

The NO GMO Coalition is creating the portuguese certification system to ensure that products with the official GMO Free Label didn't use GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in it's production (it will be similar to organic certification). Since the majority of consumers doesn't trust GMOs, these only find their way to our plate because there are many products, like the majority of animal products, that are not labeled. This label will raise awareness among consumers and pressure producers and distributors.

www.stopogm.net  has extensive information on GMOs.

There are already products in the market, that claim to contain GMOs but, besides the miniscule description and being  many times unnoticed,there are many other products made with GMOs that are not labeled such as eggs, meat, fish, dairy products which are often produced with GMO corn and soy, but this information is not available for the consumer.  The No GMO Coalition has taken action so that those products are correctly labeled but with no results yet.

So, we are moving forward with a volunteer labeling system with which we intend to:

  • Raise awareness for the existence of GMOs in our food;
  • Help consumers choose products without GMOs
  • Pressure producers and distributors to reject GMOs
  • Promote a GMO free diet

For your own good, support this cause!
