This is a popular myth, but it is just that and therefore not true. Monsanto has not banned, nor does it have any intention to ban, GMOs from its campus in St. Louis. Our employees are served foods that contain ingredients from GM crops in our cafeteria every day. In fact, every summer the St. Louis campus offers a farmers’ market to showcase some of our customers’ produce, which includes GM sweet corn, and make it available to our employees and their families.

- If GMOs are so great, why does Monsanto serve organic produce in its cafeteria?
- Why aren't Monsanto employees served GMOs in their 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 Franken-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.
