Cheese Guaranteed to Please?
NZ scientists have genetically modified cows to produce high-protein milk for the country’s cheese industry. The altered protein-levels would allow cheese-makers to produce more of their product from the same quantity of milk, and at a significantly faster rate. The radical innovation has its detractors. Greenpeace spokesman Steve Abel: “Consumers have rejected GE food crops the world over, GE dairy products will most certainly meet the same fate. There is no point producing something that nobody wants to buy.”
