Quotes

Uhl stated, "[T]he contest was never between the Marxist Left and the Right. It was between a centrist reformer [Jango] who had a vision of gradually developing a Brazilian capitalist economy... and the internationalists who would happily sell their country's labor and resource[s] to the highest bidder, so long as their own profits were high and nothing was done to endanger their spectacular privileges." [5]
"Let's be clear. Junk FoodFood and beverage companies who are members of the GMA are gobbling up organic and 'natural' brands because they recognize the huge profit potential in the fast-growing organic and natural markets. They want our business. If we stop buying their brands, they know there's a good chance we'll find alternative brands. And we might never look back" Cummins writes
...Worldwide, these new varieties have provided "very significant net economic benefits at the farm level, amounting to $18.8 billion in 2012 and $116.6 billion" from 1996 to 2012, according to a recent report by Landes Bioscience
"Delaware is proud of this investment by DuPont in the future of agriculture and that is occurring in our state," Kee said. "All of us connected with our state's agriculture look forward to the results of DuPont's commitment to helping feed the world."
