Putin counters TPP corporate protections by proposing new export industry of non-GMO foods

One of the biggest threats to the global economy is the U.S. led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the soon to be Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TPIP) which has as just one of their draconian strictures, the giving og sovereign protections to food companies that manufacture and sell GMO products.  And under these trade agreements, nations that sign onto them will forever be restricted from passing legislation hindering the sale of Genetically Modified foods as well as demanding labels that provide the public information on whether the food they are buying is GMO or not.
And perhaps in an interesting global public relations move by Russian President Vladimir Putin, on Dec. 3 Putin proposed a new export industry that would provide the global community with food that is non-GMO, and in direct opposition to Western products that have been proven to be toxic in lab tests to consumers and test animals.
