ʻO kā Cargill meaʻai āpau o ka honua hoʻonui i ka hana pālākiō ʻoihana o kāna mea hana ʻenekinia genetically, EverSweet, i kahi hale hana hou he $ 50 miliona i hoʻomaka i ka hana i kēia pule ma Blair, Nebraska. E "hoʻohua ana ka mea kanu i ka EverSweet e hoʻonanea ai i mau miliona o nā ʻōmole / kēpau o nā mea inu momona a i ʻole nā ​​lawelawe ʻana o ka yogurt i kēlā me kēia mahina," e like me ka mea haʻi ʻōlelo a Cargill. 

ʻO kā Cargill mea kanu stevia GMO hou

Ke kūʻai aku nei ʻo Cargill i kāna stevia pani hou ma ke ʻano he “hana-ʻole. ” He aha kēlā manaʻo? Nā mea kūʻai mai i kaomi ma ka loulou ʻia i ka paʻi paʻi ʻaʻole e loaʻa kahi pane pololei. Wili ka ʻaoʻao pūnaewele iā ia iho i nā puhaka e hoʻāʻo nei e wehewehe i ke kaʻina hana hou, e pili ana i ka hū genetically engineering e hoʻolilo i nā mole kō i loko o kahi mea e mimike ai i ka ʻono o stevia, ma ke ʻano he "kenekulia makahiki" - me ka ʻōlelo ʻole o ka ʻenekinia a me ka genetika nā meaola (GMO) i hoʻohana ʻia e hana i ka huahana. 

Cargill haʻi ʻia i ka Star Tribune ʻaʻole ia e mākeke iā EverSweet ma ke ʻano he "kūlohelohe" - no laila "non-artipisyal" ia. ʻAʻole pau ka subterfuge ma laila. 

ʻO Cargill, ka mea i kapa ʻia e ka hui kaiaulu o mua ʻo Kongres Henry Waxman ka inoa “ʻoihana ʻoi loa o ka honua"I ka makahiki 2019 no (ma waena o nā mea ʻē aʻe) kona" koi pinepine ʻana i ke kū ʻana i ke ala o ka holomua o ka honua i ka hoʻomau ʻana, "nā mākeke EverSweet ma ke ʻano he" sustainable "i hana ʻia. ʻO kēlā koi, e like me kā mākou i hōʻike ai i 2017 Huffington Post ʻatikala, kuke ʻia e nā mea hoʻolālā PR i hāʻawi ʻia i ka hana pehea e hana ai i nā mea hana i hana ʻia me ka vat i mea maikaʻi i nā mea kūʻai e koi nei i nā meaʻai maoli, nā meaʻai maoli me nā lepili maʻalahi.

ʻO nā ʻoihana a me nā mea hoʻopukapuka me kā lākou mau hiʻohiʻona i hoʻonohonoho ʻia i ka stevia neʻe - a me nā waiwai nui ʻē aʻe nā mea kanu a me nā mea ʻala - ma nā mahiʻai a i loko o nā hale hōʻikeʻike i hui ʻia i a Kau kauā 2014 e kūkākūkā pehea e kūʻai aku ai i kēia manaʻo i nā mea kūʻai. Paipai nā mea hoʻolālā PR i ka hālāwai e hōʻalo i nā huaʻōlelo e like me ka "synthetic biology" a me ka "engineering engineering" (weliweli loa, hoʻi i ka backlash), a ua manaʻo e hele me nā ʻano kikoʻī e like me "fermentation i loaʻa" a me "kūlike kūlike."  Ua paipai lākou i ka nānā ʻana i nā mea kūkala nūhou i nā moʻolelo o ka manaʻolana a me ka hoʻohiki, a me ka hana ʻana i nā mea hoʻoulu mea ʻai "me he mea lā ke hele nei mākou āpau ma lalo o ka hae hoʻokahi" no ka hoʻomau ʻana i ka meaʻai, ka mikiʻala a me ka mana kai.

ʻO nā ʻoihana a me nā mea kūʻai aku e mālama pono i kēlā mau manaʻo e kūpono ke nānā ma hope o ka hype. I ke kino o Cargill, “sustainable” ʻo Eversweet no ka mea hoʻoneʻe ia i ka hana mai ka ʻāina. Akā ʻaʻole maoli ia; o ka hui $ 50 miliona hou “kahi hale fermentation,” aia ma ka puʻuwai o Mākaukau GMO Roundup ʻāina kulina, e hilinaʻi ʻia ia mau hua kanu pesticide-sprayed - a i ʻole kekahi kumu kō i hoʻoulu ʻia ma ka ʻāina - e hānai i ka hū i kāna mau ipu e hana iā EverSweet. Hoʻohana kāna hoʻolaha paʻi i nā buzzwords o ka hoʻomau ʻana akā ʻaʻole hāʻawi i nā kikoʻī e kākoʻo i nā hoʻopiʻi. Ua kiʻi aku mākou i ka ʻoihana e noi no nā kikoʻī hou aʻe; ʻaʻohe pane akā e hoʻohui mākou i nā ʻōlelo i loaʻa iā mākou. 

I kēia manawa, ʻo ka mahiʻai ma nā ʻāina e like me Paraguay e hoʻomau nei i ka mahiʻai stevia no nā hanauna, a noho maikaʻi lākou i ka mahi ʻana i ka hua. hōʻike i ka hui ETC. ʻO ka Forum Economic Economic kaulana i kahi ana o nā pilikia kūpilikiʻi e pili ana i "ka hana hou ʻana o nā koho ʻē aʻe, synthetic i nā mea kūʻai aku waiwai nui… hiki ke hoʻopau koke i nā ʻoihana waiwai nāwaliwali e ka lawe ʻana i kahi kumu waiwai e hilinaʻi ai nā mahiʻai." Eia kekahi, ua paipai ikaika ʻia nā mahiʻai ʻilihuna e hoʻopukapuka ma stevia, no ka mea, ʻo ka mahi ʻana hiki ke kōkua i ka mālama ʻana i nā kaiaolaola palupalu a kū hoʻokahi. 

No nā mea kūʻai aku i ka US, ke paʻakikī nei e hōʻalo i nā mea ʻai ʻenekinia hou ke hele mālie nei i ko lākou ala i nā hale kūʻai me ka ʻole o ka lepili pono. ʻO nā mea ʻona a i ʻole GMO ʻole i hōʻoia ʻia e mau ana nā kūlana ʻelua i hana ʻia e hōʻalo i ka biology synthetic a me nā mea hana ʻenekini.

ʻO Cargill, ʻo ia ka ʻoihana pilikino nui ʻia ma ka US, ʻoi aku ka nui ma mua o nā Koch Industries kaulana, a ke kīloi nei kona kapuwai a puni ka honua, e like me ka mea i haʻi mua ʻia e ka ʻahaʻolelo ʻo Waxman, ka luna o ke kaua Mighty Earth, i ko lākou Iulai. hōʻike hōʻike iā Cargill ka ʻoihana ʻoi loa o ka Honua. "ʻIke mākou he kuleana koʻikoʻi kēia. Auē, auwe, nā hui he nui i hiki ke hoʻokūkū i kēia hanohano kānalua. Akā hāʻawi kēia hōʻike i nā hōʻike ākea a me ka ikaika e kākoʻo iā ia ... Ua ʻike maka wau i ka hopena ʻino o nā ʻoihana i lawe ʻole i kā lākou loina me lākou e hana. Akā kū ʻo Cargill. ”
