Europe's food retail sector calls for clear regulation of new GMOs

The "Retailers' Resolution against Deregulating New GMOs" demands protection for "Non-GMO“ and organic products. All GMOs on plates and fields should remain strictly regulated in the EU; the precautionary principle and labelling must not be undermined

In a statement published today, "Retailers' Resolution: European retailers take a strong stand against deregulating new GMOs", leading companies of the European food retail sector, among them major international brands as well as numerous national and organic retailers, demand that the proven-effective regulation of GMOs on the European market be maintained. This applies to products of "old genetic engineering" (primarily soy, maize, rapeseed) as well as to those produced with "new genetic engineering" methods such as CRISPR or TALEN.
