The organic industry lobby openly lies, spreads fear and attacks its competition – all activities that any organisation or company with an ethical code of conduct would forbid. I’d like to demonstrate how one organic lobbying organisation, USRTK, desperately needs such a code (… and a lot of integrity).
As I continue to migrate my site, this is my favourite blog from 2015. It looks at how the pesticide industry is restricted by its internal codes of ethical conduct that will not allow them to attack competitors, while the organic industry and NGOs have no issue with lying and spreading fear about pesticides. Industry (and society) will lose, but with integrity!
