Get the Feds in 21st Century – Letter to Editor

Federated Farmers response to Hastings District Councils GMO Free plan change (Battle to keep GMO free heats up 12/2/16) speaks volumes about how outdated the Feds thinking has become. I would dearly love someone from the Feds to explain where all the customers for GMO products are going to come from.

Without trying to sound like a broken record I wish the Feds would move into the 21st century and work constructively towards building high value for our agriculture products instead of focusing on how to increase volumes of low value commodities.

Pure Hawke’s Bay wants to get our produce in restaurants in New York that sell meals at $100 a plate. The Feds seem to want to focus on selling offal to the Pacific Islands. I wonder where readers think our future should lie?
