The most well-known organic company in Germany declares it does not support Greenpeace
Today one of the most well-known organic companies 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:
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.
