Guest: Courtney Pineau – Non GMO Project Bombshell-They Did Not Test Syngenta’s Kumato

We were asked by a friend and listener of Food Nation Radio Network about a tomato on the market that was developed by Syngenta. Our friend was concerned that it may be a GMO and asked us to investigate.

In our research, we discovered the Kumato was Non GMO Project Verified. That was comforting.

We read the Kumato story about it being developed through traditional methods and that it came from a wild tomato in Spain. Then, we dug deeper and the REAL story began to emerge.

Here’s what we found out from Courtney Pineau of the Non GMO Project
