Monsanto has announced a total withdrawal from the UK, shuttering its Cambridge-based wheat production operation. UK newspaper Daily Mail was instrumental in promoting opposition against Monsanto through its "Frankenstein Foods" educational campaign (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-199884/GM-giant-quits-Britain...).
The paper is now reporting that Monsanto plans to sell off GMO crop-breeding centers in France, Germany and the Czech Republic. Daily Mail reported, "...the company has given up hopes of introducing GM crops to Europe."
ADDED: maybe mis-leading ... the source quotes..."closing its wheat growing operation, based in Cambridge."
