Greenpeace South East Asia praises High Class Tofu's attempt to avoid GMO material by initiating non-GMO policy by exclusively employ Thailand soya bean for its products. High Class Tofu is the first company who instantly response for Thai consumer, after it was found contaminated Genetically Engineer in the middle of last April by Greenpeace South East Asia.

Auaiporn Suthonthnyakorn, Genetically Engineer Campaigner of Greenpeace South East Asia informed that it is a pleasure to know that the first Thai business owner shows its sincerity to consumer and seriously participate in protecting our environment. To prevent the Genetically Engineered contamination, High Class Tofu initiates its precise policy to entirely utilize soya bean within the country. It therefore is the excellent lesson from the small organization for the group of generous industrial business including trans-organization to apply this procedure to theirs.

"While private sector has been ready to label just now, FDA has neglected its duty to regulate the Genetically Engineer protection policy. FDA should realize the consumer and environment protection responsibility. It should practically imitate Nurse Tofu approach and, then, urgently eager to regulate the labeling" Auaiporn emphasized.

The worldwide consumers, farmers, and food manufacturers have not accepted GMO food together with GMO material, on the contrary, Thai regulator has not regulated any of control and protection GMO law. Thailand has lacked of the GM food investigation in the very beginning including import, production, and distribution those has led to several of GMO contamination.

Auaiporn lastly stated that GMO is an inherently unpredictable risky technique. Scientists have failed to predict the long-term effects of human health and environment when presented with the complexity of biological and natural systems. According to Greenpeace duty to verify and witness the unfair people and environment treated, Greenpeace still goes forward to watch out and follow up every organization including High Class Tofu who launches the friendly environmental administration.
