Meat claimed as invention by Monsanto

Meat claimed as invention by multinational company of Monsanto

(GMWatch) – Multinational seed corporations are following a consequent strategy to
gain control over basic resources for food production. As recent
research shows not only genetically engineered plants, but more and more
the conventional breeding of plants gets into the focus of patent
monopolies: International patent applications in this sector are
skyrocking, having doubled since 2007 till end of 2009. Further on the
multinationals expand their claims over the whole chain of food
production from feed to animals and food products such as meat.   In a pending patent application from Monsanto
even bacon and steaks are claimed: Patent application WO2009097403 is
claiming meat stemming from pigs being fed with the patented genetically
engineered plants of Monsanto. A similar patent is applied for fish
from aquaculture in March 2010 (WO201027788). Far reaching patents on
food are even already granted: Monsanto received a European patent (EP
1356033) in 2009, which the chain of food production from
seeds of genetically engineered plants up to food products such as meal
and oil are covered.

“There is a process going on, multinationals are trying to gain increasing control
of the whole chain of food production. Consumers, farmers and food
producers are all caught by the same trap. This has to be regarded as an
immoral attempt to abuse patent law. The company is heading for
maximising its profits by filing patents on food while at the same time
one billion people is suffering from hunger,” says Francois Meienberg
from the Berne Declaration.

As experience from the US shows, patents on seeds and increasing market concentration
are leading to drastic increase in seed prices, reduced choice in seeds
and soaring dependencies for farmers. Meanwhile the Department of
Justice and state attorneys general in several US states are
investigating whether Monsanto Company has abused its market power to
lock out competitors and raise prices in seeds. The coalition of ‘No
Patents on Seeds is warning that market concentration will even increase
if the abuse of patent law is not stopped. The coalition is supported
globally by more than 200 organisations. The organisations are demanding
a clear change in policy and practise of patent offices. Governments
are urged to to revise the patent laws in order to exclude patents on
seeds, animals and parts thereof.
