“The Alberta Seed Growers have the utmost confidence in Canada’s regulatory system, which operated successfully to detect, eliminate and monitor an isolated discovery of genetically modified wheat in Southern Alberta. This information was shared transparently by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the outcomes are further supported by Crop Life Canada and the Canada Grains Council. The system works, and we are proud to support our industry’s full commitment towards transparency with our international customers.”
