FLASHBACK: Genetically Modified Foods Are Not Served at a Monsanto Cafeteria in United Kingdom (1999)

File photo (probably not in U.K.)*

The sourced article is from 1999 which was a time before I was blogging on the Internets. Therefore, I completely missed this article. However, I am continually scouring the bowels of the Internet for the stories both past and present to see what deserves the ol' Remixx World! treatment.

The original article says that one of the Monsanto cafeterias does not serve GMO foods. In the 13 years since this article was first published, I wonder if Monsanto has changed its internal policy.

The firm running the canteen at Monsanto's pharmaceuticals factory at High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, serves only GM-free meals, Friends of the Earth said. In a notice in the canteen, Sutcliffe Catering, owned by the Granada Group, said it had taken the decision "to remove, as far as practicable, GM soya and maize from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the above steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve."
