I have learned that Monsanto employees do not allow GMO food to be served in their own cafeteria. Is that true? If so, why? Can you provide proof of your answers?

It's not true. In fact, in August 2013, our cafeteria specifically featured special menu items that include GM sweet corn and held a farmers' market to directly offer employees an opportunity to purchase GM sweet corn. More information (including photos and video) is available on Monsanto’s blog.
I’d also suggest you read our responses to similar questions on GMO Answers:
- If GMOs are so great, why does Monsanto serve organic produce in it's cafeteria?
- If GMO is so safe then why are Monsanto campuses 100% non-GMO and Organic. In other words why don't your own scientist eat your frankin-food. Seems to me pretty telling that if the guys that make this crud won't eat it then the general public probably shouldn't. Then there's the little problem of almost EVERY other nation on the planet has banned GMO. So why are you guys trying to push this crud on the American people?
If you still have questions after reading these responses, please ask.
