APN seeks to strengthen the capacity of the Arab peoples to sustain the region's natural resources and gain sovereignty over them , particularly in areas suffering from war and occupation.
On 14/12/2017, Amal Hudhud, representing the investigative journalism organization ARIJ, conducted an interview with APN co-founder and president of the Arab Network for Food Sovereignty, Razan Zuayter on the state of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Jordan.
Zuayter confirmed that there is a high degree of negligence in the monitoring of GMOs, and that as per consumers’ right to know what they are eating, the minimum requirement is to impose informative labels on food items indicating whether the ingredients are derived from or contain GMO products.
