A coalition of environmental groups, labor, consumer groups, and anti-agribusiness groups is attempting to gain more influence in setting international food policy. With America’s leading anti-choice group, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), at the fore, the nannies are making an unprecedented push to get seats on the board of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (which sets international food safety, quality, and labeling standards for the United Nations). No nanny group has ever held a seat on the board of this influential organization. The very prospect of CSPI setting international food policy is disturbing to say the least! Watch this space for developments.
