Civil society open letter to Margrethe Vestager, European Competition Commissioner.
The European Commission will conclude its investigation into the Bayer-Monsanto merger in the coming days. CIDSE is joining a call by civil society organisations urging the Commission to prevent what could become the world’s largest agriculture company, dominating the seeds and chemicals markets for the years to come.
The verdict is now in from the International Monsanto Tribunal, which took place from October 14-16th, 2016 in the Hague in the Netherlands.
In the coming weeks, the EU Commission will be deciding if it will approve the mega-merger of multinational agribusiness corporations Bayer and Monsanto.

CIDSE along with more than 200 civil society organisations call on the European Commission to block the 3 planned mergers in the agribusiness sector, as they concentrate market power and exacerbate the consequences of industrial and chemical agriculture on ecosystems, farmers, health and food security.
