Canadian sugar company Lantic Inc. (Rogers Sugar and Lantic brands) needs to reject Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) sugar beet and stay GM-Free. Lantic Inc. is the only sugar company in Canada that processes sugar beet (in Alberta) and it is currently GM-Free. It is deciding now if it will accept GM sugar beets for the first time.

Act now before the company breaks your heart by accepting GM sugar beet!

This sugar beet is genetically modified to be resistant to Monsanto's herbicide Roundup and is currently applied to sugar beet used for processing into sugar – as opposed to red table beets. GM sugar beets are wind pollinated, and there is a strong possibility that pollen from GM sugar beets could contaminate non-GM sugar beets as well as chard, and red and yellow beets (or "table beets").
