Our collaboration with the Organic Consumers Association – which revealed meaningful levels of the herbicide glyphosate in UK and EU samples of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream – and the subsequent EU parliament press conference aroudn this, produced a strong response from media around the world.

The EU has failed – once again – to agree on how to proceed with the relicensing of glyphosate, the active ingredient which underpins Roundup the world’s most widely used herbicide. It’s time to ask: what exactly is the plan here?
In a series of tests on Ben & Jerry’s ice cream sold in the UK and EU, worrying levels of glyphosate were found. Here’s what that means – and how Ben & Jerry’s responded and why you shouldn’t be too hopeful.
The question that the results of EU testing naturally bring up is whether the observed levels of glyphosate have any relevance to health. From the perspective of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the answer is no. However, from the perspective of more recent, peer-reviewed biomedical research, the answer is yes. In this new research … Read more
Newly published evidence shows that, at levels many thousands of times below what regulators around the world consider ‘safe’, long-term dietary exposure to glyphosate can trigger liver disease.
Time is running out on the decision to relicense the toxic herbicide glyphosate in Europe. Will EU authorities follow the science – or follow the money?
For those hoping for a cleaner EU food system, the new EFSA review, which effectively removes any barriers to the relicensing of glyphosate, makes grim, if somewhat predictable reading.
