Background Science

We believe in the power of science to improve humanity. The key to working with science is objectivity and a belief in reproducible results.

Tomato ripening stages for red and purple varieties

New ideas take a lot of time, data and experience to overcome rational fears and skepticism. Genetic engineering of food is no exception. 


We support a rigorous, data-driven process to determine the safety of new technologies, including GMO purple tomatoes.


We also recognize the importance of engaging with consumers about scientific data showing how biotechnology can improve health and the climate impacts of agriculture.
