Maui and Molokai Employees Rally in Support of Seed Industry

News Release from Monsanto Hawaii April 3, 2014

As part of its commitment to information sharing and providing educational opportunities to the County of Maui, as specified in its Memorandum of Understanding, Monsanto Hawaii and its Maui employees will deliver copies of several hundred studies and safety reviews on genetically engineered crops to Mayor Alan Arakawa today, Thursday, April 3.

“Monsanto has a company-wide pledge to be a good neighbor and responsible steward of the land,” said Carol Reimann, Monsanto community & government affairs manager. “We continue to work with the Mayor’s Office to engage in dialogue and enhance understanding of our farming practices in order to show our commitment to the county and our communities.”

The reports will include:

  • References to over 1,780 peer reviewed studies compiled by Italian scientists that attest to the safety of GM crops.
  • Copies of papers by multiple independent health and environmental agencies worldwide that have scrutinized GM crops.
  • A report by the National Research Council concluding that US farmers are realizing substantial economic and environmental benefits…lower production costs, less pesticides, higher yields.

Monsanto employees will also hold a short peaceful rally in front of the Maui County Building to demonstrate their support for Hawaii’s seed industry. Monsanto’s Molokai employees will assemble on Molokai this morning to express their support.
