Tell @Sainsburys and @Waitrose: No Monsanto products in UK Supermarkets!

We are concerned that you sell Bellaverde® broccoli. This is a flagship Monsanto food product.  Monsanto is the world’s largest GMO company and has been voted "The Worst Company of 2011" by Natural Society.

Your corporate and social responsibility statements claim that you care about the environment, particularly responsible development, sustainability and sourcing with integrity. However, by stocking these products you are supporting the #1 genetically modified (GMO) food company in the world.  Monsanto has received international criticism and legal action for it's negative impact on biodiversity, human rights violations and environmentally destructive practices, including the illegal dumping of toxic waste right here in the UK.

The people of the UK have voiced a resounding "NO" to genetically modified food. We ask you to please stop helping this dangerous and irresponsible company from gaining a foothold here in the United Kingdom. Stop selling Monsanto food.
