Agrifood Awareness Australia Limited (AFAA) works broadly across the agriculture sector with the aim of increasing the public awareness of and encourage informed debate and decision making about gene technology.

The AFAA is committed to providing quality, factual, science-based information on the use of gene technology in agriculture to allow for informed decisions.

According to the AFAA, gene technology is a tool of modern biotechnology. Gene technology allows researchers or scientists to introduce, enhance or delete particular characteristics of a gene, depending on whether or not they are desirable. Gene technology is also known as genetic engineering or genetic modification.

Gene technology has the potential to improve the sustainability, profitability and flexibility of Australian horticulture, allowing growers to produce healthier crops that require fewer inputs.

The AFAA publish a number of documents and resources regarding gene technology such as:

  • the Biotech Bulletin
  • booklets
  • fact sheets
  • horticulture newsletters
  • issue papers
  • resource guides/commercial approvals
  • Q&A

The AFAA is committed to providing quality science-based information to encourage informed decision making.
