Farmers Vs PepsiCo

Recently four farmers from Gujarat were sued by multinational giant Pepsico. The multinational conglomerate claims that the farmers have been illegally growing and selling a variety of potato which is exclusively registered by them. They used this potato, they claim for producing Lays potato chips. Pepsico claims that the farmers being sued are not among the thousands that it has authorised the protected potato variety. However, farmer unions and activists say that this violates farmers’ rights and is against seed sovereignty and are fighting back against the company making this the latest battle in India between locals and big global players. The Suno India Show reached out to Kavitha Kuruganti of the Alliance for Sustainable & Holistic Agriculture (ASHA) to know more about this.
