GM canola was grown in Australia for the first time in 2008. GM and non-GM canola were separated in 2009 but this adds extra costs and difficulties for farmers and suppliers. GM and non-GM canola were mixed after harvest in November 2009. Ring supermarkets and food companies to ask that they only use non-GM canola in their homebrands and in the products they stock.
