Expressing their discontent
These representatives of French gastronomy wished to show their discontent and fears following the acquisition of the US group Monsanto by Bayer. Their goal: to fight against the presence of agrochemicals on our plates and participate in raising awareness. In addition, they are afraid that these two great biotechnology companies will take control of the whole of the food chain, from the earth to the plate. Because they support biodiversity and respect the environment, they think that such a stranglehold could be very bad for diversity in farming and transform farmers into mere farm operators.
