Who We Are
The purpose of the Growers for Biotechnology, Inc, is to promote and facilitate the research, development and acceptance of agricultural biotechnology.
The stated objectives of the Growers for Biotechnology, Inc., (GFB) are as follows:
- To provide factual public information knowledge about the adoption of biotechnology in agriculture and its contribution to a safe, abundant and environmentally sound food production system.
- To advocate the advancement of research and development of biotechnology applications in agriculture to the benefit of growers, processors or consumers.
- To insure that the important decisions regarding the adoption of biotechnology applications are based on sound science and realistic business principles.
The Growers for Biotechnology, Inc., was the brainchild of seven farm producers, who determined that a need existed to tell a more complete story surrounding the benefits of biotechnology in agriculture.
After many informal discussions, the group decided to form a non-profit corporation and pool their time and resources, to support their outreach initiatives.
