Lawsuit Reflects Fight Over Altered Food (Monsanto sues Maine Dairy)
Advertisements [?]

Monsanto Corp.'s decision to sue Oakhurst Dairy this week highlights an emerging battle over the
widespread use of genetically altered food.

So far, consumers seem to be moving to the side that favors "food that has not been modified by
somebody going in and monkeying about with the genes," said Kevin Coupe, a retail analyst who
produces the Web site

"One of the biggest (food) categories right now is natural and organic foods," Coupe said. "There's a
reason why it's growing."
