In the agriculture activities human beings interact with ecosystems. Many current cultivations are the result of crossings aiming to concentrate the positive characteristics of different varieties.
In order to do it, it is necessary that crossing plants are compatible, otherwise the natural barriers prevent, in most cases, the fertilization between different species.
On the contrary, GMOs are the result of artificial recombination of material obtained through the inclusion of DNA fragments of a donor organism in a host organism that in nature could not in any way exchange the hereditary material.
An example: the inclusion of the characteristic of resistance to cold induced in strawberries through the inclusion of the DNA sequence that in Arctic fish determines a greater tolerance to low temperatures, would not have been possible with the crossing techniques used in agriculture up to now.

For this reason, Gheda Petfood does not support the free use of genetically modified organisms and respects the regulations in force and the limits imposed for “NO GMO” products.

– genocides are perpetrated by human beings and others may happen in the future;
– the respect for animals by humans is linked to the respect for humans among themselves.
– education should teach from childhood to observeunderstandrespect and love animals.
