Biotech taboos taken to task

8th September 1995 at 01:00

With the aim of educating the public about the subject, the Food and Drink Federation is launching a Biotechnology Communications Forum in York on September 18. Further meetings are planned throughout the country. Details: Carol Elsasser, FDF, 6 Catherine Street, London WC2 5JJ. Tel. 0171 836 2460.
