Amid Controversy, Secrecy, and Lawsuits, 5,000 Organic Stakeholders Calling for New Management at USDA National Organic Program

Cornucopia Institute

CORNUCOPIA, Wisconsin - The Cornucopia Institute has delivered to the USDA more than 5,000 individually signed letters from farmers and consumers calling for new management of the National Organic Program (NOP). The Wisconsin-based organic food and farm policy research group collected the letters from concerned organic advocates across the country.

"This is one more indication of the growing dissatisfaction with Deputy Administrator Miles McEvoy’s direction and oversight of the rapidly growing organic industry," said Mark Kastel, who acts as Cornucopia's Senior Farm Policy Analyst.

C'mon CD this should be posted in the News That Matters section. Another blatant example of the corruption of the government by big money.
