We have just received
notification from MAF of their planned conference on Food Safety for Domestic
Consumers and International Trade- scheduled for 17/18 October at the Heritage
Hotel in Auckland, New Zealand.
Main agenda item is
the plan for a NZ Food Safety Authority -
workshops are to be
held on meat, dairy and seafood enterprises, on domestic standards and
on the changes to the Agric compounds and Vet Med Act;
but amazingly there
is no specific mention of GE food or GE food labelling as agenda or workshop
issues. Is this a whitewash?
Please can you all through
your networks publicise this conference and ask people to contact MAF with
expressions of interest to attend the conference, asking specifically for
a workshop session on GE food and impacts on NZ Food Safety, or similar
Those who send in expression
of interest will be sent conference details.
