Literature Review Draft 2 Minh Tri

After reading the article, Jones(2012) writes " The Singapore Government is generally receptive to GMO imports".  They are receptive without the citizens' "permission". Furthermore, the Jones(2012) also writes  "Singapore currently has no labeling restrictions for GMO foods". Hence, consumers would not know what they are eating as written by Jones(2012), "which means that consumers have little way of distinguishing a product that has been helped out by Science from one that has been allowed to go naturally".  By doing this, consumers do not know the difference between GMO and non GMO food. If consumers that do not know GMO and still eats GMO food because of the fact there was no labeling, there might be a protest that the government do not tell what it is feeding the citizens. Hence, our research, would like to know about the citizen's opinion on GMO and how they think of it. And by finding out the opinion of the citizen's on GMO, we would know if labeling is required for foods. We would like to go to the SuperMarkets and ask shoppers whether they know that what they are buying are GMO food or not. From their reaction, we also know that labeling is required for food products.

  1. Generally alright, so you might want to work on how exactly you intend to "ask shoppers" about GMO food. For example, which supermarkets will you visit? what is your target demographic? and why? Think well about these. before you take action.
