Happy New Year Y’All

Hello Readers,

I haven’t posted in a while. I am in the middle of writing a feature length article about the GE wheat trials that are taking place in Horsham, Victoria.The Office of the Gene Technology Regulator publishes an online map of GE field trial sites in Australia here: http://www.ogtr.gov.au/internet/ogtr/publishing.nsf/content/map

I have also been busy trying to wrap my head around the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Civil Eats has a great explainer about that here: http://civileats.com/2014/01/21/how-will-the-tpp-affect-the-food-system/ and The Global Mail have a great audio piece by journalist Michael Safi here : http://www.theglobalmail.org/feature/whos-afraid-of-the-tpp/752/

2014 is going to be an interesting year in food politics. February will see the Marsh vs Baxter trial in the Perth Supreme Court- the outcome of this case could influence the future of GM crops in this country.

Stay tuned,

Sarah Coles
