Slow Food continues its campaign against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the model they represent, based on a monoculture agricultural system and the concentration of power in the hands of a few multinational corporations.

In this appointment, Slow Food explains and explores the reasons why it opposes GMOs and indeed the European deregulation of the so-called new GMOs, known in Italy as Assisted Evolution Techniques.
