Honey produced by thousands of Mexican beekeepers is at serious risk of contamination from genetically modified soybeans. Producers have called for a new model of social production.
On International Food Day, national and local organizations held a forum with beekeepers and researchers in Mexico’s scenic Yucatan Peninsula.
The subject: the threat to honey production posed by genetically modified soybeans in the region.
The National Union of Regional Autonomous Peasant Organizations (UNORCA by its Spanish initials) and Greenpeace Mexico sponsored the forum.
