Ted Zettel speach to Speech to the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-…

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for inviting me to speak to you today on the important topic of biotechnology and its impact on organic agriculture and food, from the perspective of the organic sector.
My name is Ted Zettel and I am a third generation dairy farmer from Chepstow here in Ontario. Twenty years ago I participated in the founding of Organic Meadow, a farmers’ cooperative, which is now the leading brand of organic dairy products in Canada. I am the President of the Organic Federation of Canada, the organization which represents the sector to the Canadian government on regulatory issues. I also sit on the Organic Value Chain Round Table and have worked in consultation with its task force on Genetic Engineering in preparing these comments today.
