Food For Life

Greenpeace celebrates the natural diversity of food and farming! Genetically engineered (GE) food such as ‘Golden’ rice is environmentally irresponsible, poses risks to human health and could compromise food and nutrition security. Facilitating people's access to a varied diet of ecologically farmed food, through home and communal gardens, is the most effective and sustainable solution to tackle vitamin deficiencies in the long term and ensure healthy and nutritious food for people.
