Peru’s ban on GMO foods prohibits the import, production and use of genetically modified foods. The law is aimed at safeguarding the country’s agricultural diversity and preventing cross-pollination with non-GMO crops. It will also help protect Peruvian exports of organic products.
“Consumer demand for organic, fair-trade foods, as well as traceability to where their food is grown, is increasing at a significant rate. Numerous countries around the world are banning genetically modified foods, even burning GMO fields, as the long-term safety of what many refer to as ‘FrankenFoods’ has yet to be established. While science has made great accomplishments in both agriculture and nutrition, I still recommend clients/patients avoid GMO foods whenever possible. It is important to me, a Naturopathic physician who believes that food is our medicine, that we respect the laws of Nature. Many countries, like Peru, share this belief and all the food products imported from Peru for sale by Ah Brands have not been genetically modified,” states Rob Streisfeld, NMD, the Company’s Health & Wellness Advisor.
