The Safe Food Guide tries to make food manufacturers answerable to the consumer. As consumers we need to question the badly ranked companies about the safety of the products they produce for us.
The companies are categorised into red, green and yellow based on their current and long-term policies on the use of GM food, willingness to inform their position to consumers and pro-activeness in ensuring a labelling and liability regime on foods derived from GM crops.
Some brands, which were ranked high in the first version of the guide have been ranked lower in the new version. This is mainly because the first guide focused on companies’ current policy on the use of GM food and the second one has extended its parameters to include future long-term policies on the use of GM foods. Their lack of willingness to be transparent and to ensure a GM free market for Indian consumers is also responsible for the low ranking.
