The food industry in Hawke’s Bay was ready to party last night after confirmation the Hastings District Council has become the first local body in New Zealand to block genetically modified food production.
Industry leader John Bostock showed all the enthusiasm of a province winning the Ranfurly Shield when he said last night: “We are so excited. It’s a wonderful thing.”
great news from Hawke's Bay- Hastings District Council has voted to ban not only GMO releases but all outdoor use of GMOS (including any outdoor GE experiments and field trials )
