Consensus Conference on Gene Technology in the Food Chain

ABA Media Release - 17 March 1999

Biotechnology - the Public's Need to Know

Code Number:AU99002

The Lay Panel of the recent First Australian Consensus Conference on Gene Technology in the Food Chain highlighted the need to promote greater public awareness about gene technology and its use in a range of products and services.

Dr Anne Campbell, President of the Australian Biotechnology Association (ABA), applauds this recommendation.

"People who are better informed about gene technology and the risks and benefits associated with its applications will be better able to decide for themselves whether they will buy and use food and medicines made by it - and also whether they will feel comfortable with the use of the technology in agriculture for growing crops, in cleaning up the environment, in reducing the numbers of feral animals as well as to produce safer medicines", Dr Campbell said.
