Only Waitrose holding out now ... and I don't like their stuff.

Just have to buy 'organic'.

But Peter Melchett from the Soil Association said: ‘The idea that there is a shortage of non-GM  animal feed is a myth peddled by companies selling GM feed.

‘The fact is that 20 to 25 per cent of Brazilian soybean production is free from genetic modification for the 2012-2013 crop – more than enough to supply the whole of the demand from Europe.

‘China and India soybean production is 100 per cent non-GM.’

Pete Riley from the group GM Freeze, said the retailers, ‘could have retained their non-GM policies by increasing prices paid to farmers, however farmers and consumers appear to come a very poor second to profits and share dividends’.

Waitrose is now the only large retailer to have a total ban on GM feed for chickens producing meat and eggs. It allows it for most other livestock.

AT LONG, LONG, LAST THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA OPENS HALF OF ONE EYE!

What a pity they didn't open it until the situation got this bad (... but then, that's probably a part of the overall 'plot')
