Safe Food Matters Inc. is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and protecting the environment through educating and fostering public understanding and engagement on the safety of food production technologies.
We do this in 2 ways:
- By collecting, communicating and disseminating information on food production technologies. Currently we are reviewing and writing on the genetic modification in Canada of the potato and salmon, as well as the irradiation of beef and synthetic biotechnology.
- By providing public events. We co-presented with Fort York, the ” Farm to Fork On Common Ground” festival on the weekend of September 24 and 25, 2016 from noon to 6 pm. at Fort York Toronto, at which well researched speakers will provided information. There was also be an organic farmers’ market and organic vendors, bevvies, soulful music, site-specific dance, a giant puppet theatre, collaborative art making for all ages, environmental defenders, and food safety and seed freedom advocates.
