Greenpeace Target Swedish GM Soy Supplier

Published fredag 24 mars 2006 kl 11.09

Greenpeace activists blockaded a storage facility for genetically-modified, or GM, soy in Sweden Thursday, calling for a halt to its use as animal feed. According to a Greenpeace GM spokesperson the group had ”welded shut the silo doors.”

Greenpeace activists unfurled banners calling for a halt to genetic experiments on feed and erected signs around the Lantmännen’s facility in the south eastern city of Norrköping which read ”Warning contains GMO, genetically modified organisms.”

Police made a brief appearance at the scene, but took no action, Greenpeace said.

A dozen protesters remained at the plant while other protesters travelled to Lantmännen’s head office in Stockholm to meet the company’s managing director, Birgitta Johansson-Hedberg, who defended her company’s policy.

Lantmännen is one of Sweden’s largest importers of animal feed with a turnover US $3.7 billion dollars in 2005

According to a company spokesperson Lantmännen’s sale of GM animal feed complies with European and Swedish legislation.
