Rejection of GE food spreads in Eastern Europe

Greenpeace today published some results which show that consumers and food producers in Poland and Russia have become strong opponents against genetically engineered food. In Poland, an opinion poll commissioned by Greenpeace shows that 76% of Polish consumers do not wish to eat food products that contain GE ingredients, such as GE soya and GE maize. The Russian Consumers Guide reveals more than 450 food companies in the country that have adopted a GE free policy.</p><p><a href="http://www.greenpeace.org/international/press/releases/rejection-of-ge-food-spreads-i">Greenpeace Press Release</a></p><p><a href="http://en.rian.ru/society/20050518/40375624.html">RIA Novosti: Two-thirds of Russians unwilling to eat GM-Food</a></p><p><a href="http://www.checkbiotech.org/root/index.cfm?fuseaction=newsletter&topic_id=2&subtopic_id=10&doc_id=11472">Moscow Times via checkbiotech.org: Food producers assail Greenpeace blacklist</a></p><p><a href="http://cee.greenpeace.at/gpcee/pl/secure/k-tools/phplib/MedienDatenbankView.inc.php?id=1722">Opinion poll done by PBS in Poland [engl. figures at the end]</a>
