With the 2008 annual Chefs’ Congress behind us and with the 2010 Congress scheduled for British Columbia we’re asking for your continued involvement. In response to interest shown in Jeffrey Smith’s presentation about the threat posed by Genetically Modified Organisms, we’ve taken the opportunity to organise an online group to discuss these risks.
The purpose of this group is help inform and unite us around the fight to stop Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) from landing on our plates at home and in our restaurants. You can sign up for this discussion group by going to: http://ca.groups.yahoo.com/group/gmofreezone
Chefs, hospitality professionals, restauranteurs, farmers, growers and fishers have the power to influence; the power to create awareness; and the power to change people’s eating habits one forkful at a time.
When you join GMO Free Zone - Food Professionals Against GMOs you also join the growing network of manufacturers, retailers, healthcare practitioners, the natural food industry and media that are already committed to informing consumers of the health risks associated with GMOs in our food supply. As food professionals we have the power to help direct the purchasing power of tens of millions of consumers through our organizations. We can help Canada reach that tipping point that will drive GMOs out of our food supply.
Please consider adding your name to the Campaign’s growing list of supporters because it not only addresses you and your community’s health concerns, but will also help influence the decisions of everyone in the food industry – restaurants, food manufacturers, distributors, and farmers. As Chefs and food professionals we interact with these people on a daily basis and therefore have the power to create change.
When you sign up to join GMO Free Zone you will receive a welcome-email with several concrete steps you can take to begin acting to stop GMOs.
Remember that we have the power to change! Take the first step and become a member of the Campaign so you can help be a part of the Non-GMO tipping point that is going on in North America. There is no fee to join. We need your help to take us to the next level in the rejection of GM foods in our food supply. Again, you can sign up for this discussion group by going to: http://ca.groups.yahoo.com/group/gmofreezone
