[GreenYes] a "futures market" in non-GMO products


I think we'd all like to see non-GMO bioplastics too .



Non-GMO Futures Market Launched for Grains. Diapason Commodities Management
SA, a fund manager with $5 billion in assets, has just announced the
establishment of its agricultural commodity-based index which incorporates
only non-genetically modified organisms. The Non-GMO Index includes five
futures contracts: Tokyo Grain Exchange Non-GMO Soybeans, Euronext Milling
Wheat, Euronext Feed Wheat, Euronext Corn, and Euronext Rapeseed. The
Agriculture Non-GMO Index is published in US dollars and includes only those
commodities whose exports represent more than 0.1% of global world trade.
The Index will offer traders a reason to watch closely for signs of changes
in consumer acceptance or prospective regulation of GMO grain-based
products. (treehugger, November 29, 2006,
