GM apple invasion in Canada - take action now!

Posted: July 5, 2012 |   Comments

The small BC company called Okanagan Specialty Fruits has submitted a request to Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for approval of their GM "non-browning" apple. Contamination from GM apples threatens the future of our apples, and the farmers who grow them.

69% of Canadians oppose the GM apple. See the survey commissioned by the BC Fruit Growers Association and the Quebec Apple Producers Association, July 3, 2012.
The CFIA "public comment" period is over. You can read CBAN's comments to the CFIA here.

The GM "non-browning" apple is engineered to keep from going brown after being cut. This apple is designed for fast food companies and food processing and food service companies that use pre-cut apples. The technology was developed in Australia and licensed by the small BC company called Okanagan Specialty Fruits.

Write to your provincial agriculture minister and ask them to take action to protect the apple growers in your area from the GM apple.
Write or call your federal Member of Parliament. You can look up their contacts using your postal code at

Tell the government that you don't want to eat a GM apple!
