PARIS Oct. 24 – Sial, the International Food Salon of Paris, organized once very two years, is currently taking place in the Villepinte Fair facilities. The Marche region is represented by 10 companies, participating under the Region’s brand and Marchet, the specialized Chamber of Commerce Ancona agency for internationalization. Operators’ participation in the past three days has been relevant. “Regardless of the current crisis – says Paolo Petrini, vice president and assessor to Agriculture – the food and wine sector is performing better than expected.” The Marche products are exposed in the Italian Section managed by ICE in Pavilion 1. Other firms from the region are present as independent agents and through other representatives. Clearly, this 2012 edition is dominated by young entrepreneurs, who work with honey and wine and were selected by the Ministry for Agricultural Policies and the new Marche Bio Consortium – also present at the Salon in Pavilion 8, dedicated to bio products. The initiative is the fruit of the collaboration between the Marche Region and the Ancona Chamber of Commerce, that was able to introduce regional products in an international fair, with operators from all over the globe.

Dec. 21, 2012 Future historians may well look back and write about our time …. about how willing we are to sacrifice our children and jeopardize future generations with this massive experiment that is based on false promises and flawed science just to benefit the “bottom line of a commercial enterprise,” said Don Huber, referring to the North American “experiment” with glyphosate and genetically modified crops... http://www.producer.com/2012/12/scientist-raises-concerns-about-gm-crops-and-glyphosate/

Instead of the supposed revolution in agriculture that Monsato's GM seeds were meant to bring, the opposite effect has occurred – a gigantic rise in herbicide/pesticide use

A Historian’s Take on Food and Food Politics...
This brief article highlights that as much as technology has changed food production, there this is much more that has remained the same. Of the thousands of plants on Earth, 11 account for most of what we eat (corn, rice, wheat, cassava, potatoes, sorghum, millet, beans, barley rye and oats) . Not surprisingly, those 11 plants are the same that have been cultivated by humans for thousands of years--makes you think that early humans, while not technologically advanced, were constantly conducting agricultural experiments and found many of the best animal and plant resources for human consumption. This is one reason losing local indigenous knowledge about cultural ecology and the species' genetic diversity would be a great loss for humanity.
