Food Security Network claims to be, "an independent, non-profit coalition of people throughout the world dedicated to participating in an open, informed and impactful dialogue addressing solutions to global food security concerns through sustainable agricultural practices." [1].

A simple examination of the organizations web site, www.foodsecurity.net, reveals a definite pro-biotechnology bias, including criticisms of organic farming and organizations critical of biotechnology.
