Tomato growers were cited as demonstrating in London today in an attempt
to squash the myth that their crops are genetically modified (GM) after a
survey revealed one in three shoppers believed this was the case.
More than 30 growers from around Britain were accompanied by TV food
expert Loyd Grossman as they delivered a basket of freshly picked tomatoes
for the Prince of Wales, who has spoken out against GM foods, to his
London home at St James's Palace.
