The most well-known organic company in Germany declares it does not support Greenpeace

Today the most well-known organic company in Germany declared that it does not support Greenpeace. In response to the planned demonstration at their German headquarters in Munich by the Golden Rice Now campaign, HiPP GmbH & Co released the following statement: http://allowgoldenricenow.org/hipp-statement

The Golden Rice Now campaign had identified HiPP as a Greenpeace supporter due to the parallel statements concerning GMOs and by the public defense of HiPP by Greenpeace in recent controversies over key ingredients in HiPP products.

“We are pleased to learn that HiPP does not support Greenpeace” says Dr Patrick Moore, leader of the Golden Rice Now Campaign. “This means they do not support Greenpeace’s campaign against Golden Rice. We congratulate HiPP for making their position clear and helping public discussion about Golden Rice and nutrition in developing countries.”

The Allow Golden Rice Society hopes that this statement from HiPP will cause other organic companies and food organizations to distance themselves from the Greenpeace campaign against Golden Rice.

Vancouver businessman and philanthopist Cary Pinkowski is welcomed to the Allow Golden Rice Society Board of Directors. Mr. Pinkowski is a strong proponent of allowing science to lead in decisions regarding natural resource development and the environment. See More...

Campaign spokesman Dr. Patrick Moore is a Phd ecologist, award-winning scientist, author and educator. He believes the opponents of Golden Rice have no evidence to justify a ban on researching and developing it, as it is a food that could end untold human suffering and the death of millions of people.

How You Can Help

The most effective way you can help is by making a donation to support travel, media communications, website management and printing.  The more support we have the more pressure we can put on Greenpeace and their allies to change their policy on Golden Rice.

If you live in a city that has a Greenpeace office or other presence (their ships visit many ports each year) you can work with us to create simultaneous co-ordinated demonstrations using our banner and leaflets. We will provide media support and Patrick Moore will be available to make sure the media knows the demonstrations are taking place.

Greenpeace has blocked Golden Rice using public pressure, and that is the only way they will be convinced to change their position and make an exception for Golden Rice.
