business news in context, analysis with attitude

ROME -- As we write these words, delegates are filing into the hall for Day One of the CIES World Food Business Summit…and the sense of quiet expectation has been punctured by an enormous Greenpeace truck that has rolled up outside the hall and is broadcasting animal rights and anti-biotech messages in several languages through humongous speakers that are almost shaking the chandeliers…

Maybe it won’t be business as usual at CIES.

We’ll let you know.
