GMO and Organic Products in Iceland

Q: What is the situation on GMO products and organic food, as well as about the usage of pesticides and such toxic substances in Iceland? Are GMOs banned? Is organic food easy to find? And how much does it cost?

A: Iceland follows guidelines from the European Union when it comes to organic products as well as genetically modified organisms. GMOs are not banned in Iceland but they are required to be labeled as such. Similarly, laws strictly dictate which products can be labeled GMO-free and/or organic. Bovine growth hormones are completely banned.
