Donovan Price, local baker and yeast buyer, comes to Winegoggle with some questions for the vocal GMO apologist and Anchor Girl, Karien O’Kennedy.
I have a few questions for Karien O’Kennedy who has been vocal here and on another site about her view that GMO in wine is ?+¦-+???+¦-ú?-¦?+¦-ú?+¦+ënot so bad.’
,So Karien, please look here http://www.pub.ac.za/docs/factfile_gmo_wine.pdf and tell me how far has Anchor Yeast progressed with its own or sponsored research into transgenic yeasts?
-,What has Anchor Yeast spent (in US dollar) internationally on the development of GM yeast?
-,What has Anchor Yeast contributed toward any research by the University of Stellenbosch, and in which department?
-,How much money has Anchor Yeast committed to the Institute of Biotechnology’s planned GM vine research so far?
-,What is Anchor Yeast’s annual budget for GMO research?
-,When did Anchor Yeast commenced research into GM yeasts?
In 2006 Melanie Gosling wrote in the Cape Times (http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=14&click_id=143&art_id=vn20061018013712374C594914) that GM yeasts are ready and waiting to be made available in SA. This yeast was developed by an ex-South African scientist (Van Vuuren?) at a Canadian university. Is Anchor Yeast connected to this product?
,Does Anchor Yeast supply GM products to the baking or beer industry in South Africa/Africa or elsewhere?
