Farmers and customers protested to Sainsbury this morning, delivering a large mound of non-GM animal feed to the front of its Holborn headquarters.

Members of the Fair Price for GM Free Milk Coalition also chained themselves to doors of the offices in protest at Sainsbury’s use of GM crops, which are fed to the cattle that produce the stores dairy products.

“Sainsbury’s suppliers now pay farmers less for their feed than it costs to produce. We want to avoid GM crops, but the poor payment we currently receive forces many of us to keep using the fractionally cheaper GM contaminated imports. The public and farmers are united on this - GM is bad news, apo when are Sainsbury going to keep their four year-old promise and help us get rid of it”
