ABOUT USFounded in July 2012, we are a team of volunteers, who since 2010, have been working on the issue of GMOs in New Caledonia and the Pacific. Our largest achievement to date is the regulation we have put in place in New Caledonia, forbidding GMO seed imports into the country (effective immediately) and the mandatory labelling of products containing GMO ingredients (effective January 2017).
OUR NETWORK IN THE PACIFICSTOP GMO Pacific is currently linked to a dozen organizations and associations concerned with the issue of GMOs; including associations in France, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Wallis and Futuna , and Vanuatu. The association has participated in Oceania 21 meetings by presenting the current circumstances of GMOs in the Pacific Island States which has resulted in the declaration of the need to establish a regional monitoring for GMO -free agriculture, in order to preserve biodiversity and traditional Pacific agriculture.
OBJECTIVEAs referenced above, our main objective is to create a government funded GMO presence database and an extensive knowledge network, which would allow us to share and gather information about the current GMO situation throughout the Pacific region. In order to achieve this, we need your assistance to create the raw data for the database.
