Europe still focused on non-GMO


Europeans remain focused on discouraging GMO ingredients from human food. They are less concerned about animal feed.

The recent report from the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine does little to refute or support this stance. It remains ambivalent about GMO crops.

US producers of packaged food exported to Europe still have to secure approval for the use of any GMO ingredients, and to specify GMO content on their label. And then they have to deal with retailers, who are adverse to the media risks of selling food with any GMO content.
