Stage Set for Next Battle Over GMO Corn in France
Common Dreams - 8/2/2013.
By Andrea Germanos - France's top administrative court overturned on Thursday a government ban on the cultivation of a genetically modified (GMO) corn made by American biotech giant Monsanto. France's Minister of Agriculture, Stéphane Le Foll, pushed back against the court's ruling on Thursday, saying the Counsel of State is "not the decider" of who can and cannot ban GMOs, and said the "government line would be the same: we are not in favor of GMOs."

Bangor Daily News - 8/2/2013.
By Emily Burnham - Kate McAleer’s Belfast-based candy company - Bixby & Co. - had a rather unorthodox beginning. It started, in theory, on a golf course. Fast forward five years, and McAleer is in the sweet business of crafting artisan, organic chocolate bars, made with pure, GMO-free chocolate, all natural spices, nuts and fruits and no added sugar.
