First, to explain: there are thousands of other seed companies out there that have also signed the Safe Seed Pledge and/or might even be organic. However, Monsanto purchased purchased Semenis which was the world’s largest seed company and now they own thousands of conventional seed companies in addition to their GMO seed business. Monsanto now owns 40% of the conventional seed market in the US and 20% of the worldwide market, including organics and heirlooms. It’s not terribly easy to avoid them, which is why we’ve compiled this list with the help of readers and some experts from the field, both to help you navigate through things as well as encouragement for companies to take part in the boycott so that they may also qualify to have their names included.
Here they are, and please let us know of any companies we may have missed and we will add them to this list. Names are in alphabetical order, try to search for a company in your bioregion when possible. Also, it never hurts to ask any company if they sell any Seminis seeds or seeds from Seminis’ partners.
