German exposure

On July 18th, the weekly Sunday news show on Germany’s principal public broadcaster explored two recent accusations of biopiracy in South Africa in a story entitled “Kampf gegen Biopiraterie”. The first involves German company Schwabe’s illegitimate use of traditional knowledge of the medicinal properties of pelargonium. Johanna von Braun (Natural Justice) features in the second case of alleged bioprospecting on Honeybush and Rooibos by Swiss food giant Nestle. The news clip (in German) can be found here. Read more about Natural Justice’s involvement in the Nestle case here.
