FSANZ, our food authority, allows GM foods into our food supply, relying on the studies done by the companies that manufacture the GM seed. FSANZ does not do independent food safety testing.
South Australia (SA) is the ONLY mainland state in Australia that is still GM-free. The current Labor government and the Greens have committed to maintaining the Moratorium on the growing of commercial GM crops until September 2019. The Liberal party has made no such commitment.
SAGFIN is the not-for-profit, community based organisation in SA, dedicated to protecting people and the environment from potentially dangerous GM foods and crops. Volunteers manage the association.
We gather and distribute information, host public events, liaise with the media and make submissions to governments at all levels. We work collaboratively with other organisations that have similar aims, especially those operating at a national level.
In order to continue researching and disseminating this information we ask for your membership to help keep out the unwanted application of GM to foods and farming in SA.
