EU food industry calls for GMO thresholds

New thresholds for the presence of non-EU-approved genetically modified crops in feed imports should be extended to food imports “as a matter of urgency”, says the European food and drink industry association, FoodDrinkEurope. The new rules set a threshold of 0.1% for the accidental presence of GM material, provided it is already under evaluation for EU approval ( Agrow No 619, p 11). They were a response to complaints that the EU’s “zero tolerance” policy was disrupting feed supplies. However, FoodDrinkEurope points out that food producers are also dependent on raw material imports and are confronted with very comparable challenges to feed producers.
