June 3, 2015, sustainablepulse.com | “Coop stated last week that ‘Even if the (Swiss) Federal Office for Agriculture (BLW) judges glyphosate can be continued to be sold without a health hazard for the population, we decided on Monday 18th May to no longer sell any glyphosate-based products in Coop supermarkets and Coop Building & Hobby hardware stores.’ It is a preventive measure. ‘…we don’t sell the concentrate, but only a very diluted form, the ready-made products.
