Commenting on the announcement today by the European Commission to provisionally approve the acquisition by German chemical company BASF of parts of Bayer's Crop Science business, clearing the way for the Bayer-Monsanto merger, Adrian Bebb, Senior Food Campaigner for Friends of the Earth Europe said:

Europe's current model of farming and food consumption is destroying the environment and hurting people. Industrial agriculture damages water supplies, wildlife and rural communities, and its impacts are felt heavily in developing countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to stop the expansion of industrial agriculture with all its negative environmental and social impacts. We promote farming and food which respects the world's finite natural resources and is fair to farmers and consumers.
