Holy Cow - I saw them trying it in the USA and soon for Europe, but in New Zealand already?

That means there is one already drafted and waiting for the right moment in Australia.

I guess that means we'll see some more 'Dangers of Organic Food' stories on A Current Affair and the rest of those crap after-dinner mintstrosities.

Re: KIWIS! *Petition* Oppose the New Zealand Government Food Bill 160-2
Nestle wants you to be scared of organic food

30 Aug 2011 7:00 AM

In eye-opening comments to Fast Company this weekend, Nestlé's chairman and former CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe offers a lengthy disquisition on the "problems" associated with organic foods and covers all the classic anti-organic arguments, from "organic can't feed the world" to "organic isn't any better for you." He concludes by declaring that organic food sales in the U.S. and Europe have likely hit their peak. "I don't think it will grow much more," he adds.
To a large extent, this is a guy talking his book, as the financial types say. In the article, Fast Company observes that Nestlé "has made acquisitions of several premium brands that organic-loving people tend to buy: San Pellegrino water, PowerBar energy bars, and Skinny Cow ice cream." However, none of those brands are organic. And a quick glance at the organic industry structure shows us that Nestlé is barely involved. They don't own a significant stake in a single major organic brand, despite that fact that their closest candy competitors have all done so (Hershey owns Dagoba and Cadbury owns Green and Black's).

It's discouraging, if not surprising, to see the old "organic can't feed the world" canard gracing the pages of another well-intentioned media outlet. But Brabeck-Letmathe isn't content to rehash that tired trope. To heighten his argument, Brabeck-Letmathe also drags out the ancient claim that organic foods cause "30 to 40 deaths per year" in consumers due to improper use of manure in organic production. Over on Civil Eats, Anna Lappé has done a thorough job of documenting the long history of this false claim -- going back to a retracted 20/20 news report from a decade ago. She also cleverly points to the fact that Brabeck-Letmathe has been giving essentially this same interview for years.

<snip>

So, it appears the idea is that you eat Nestlé's highly processed food until you contract diabetes or another related disease, at which point you will switch to their neutraceutical products to manage the illness. It really is the perfect business model.

They try things out here and then implement them elsewhere after studying the results.
Remember GST?
Just horiifying.
It's going to be illegal to swap seeds or plant material with your next door neighbour?
Or even give stuff away?!
