Poland allows the use of GMO soy in animal feed starting 2016

Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski has recently signed an amendment on the law of animal feeding, which allows the use of genetically modified soybeans in animal nutrition starting 2016. He noted that this decision is “economically and socially reasonable.” He added that without this amendment, poultry and pork producers in the country could face difficulties. However, the decision was criticised by the Ministry of agriculture. “Poland should be free of GMO products. There are a lot of reasons for this for example the health of people, the protection of environment and the need for the maintenance of biological diversity”, said Mark Kalembe Minister of Agriculture of Poland, in an interview.
