Namib Mills have applied for the import, process and selling of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) maize meal. This GMO have proven to be NOT healthy for human or animal consumption, secondly hence GMO maize its cheaper, local and smallholder farmers cannot sell their maize or corn for the most desired price.
It therefore as Namibians that we petition the import, processing and selling of GMO maize meal and rather support our own local smallholder farmers who produce organic maize. This decision will also create an artificial maize shortage from those who have the monopoly of Maize and feed products in Namibia, however there are countries that do sell organic Maize to fill up the maize shortage safely.
