Austria shuns GM maize for food and feed

Austrian supermarkets will not sell food based on genetically modified organisms and its feed industry will not use GM maize, the Europe-based “research programme on co-existence and traceability”, Co-Extra, reports. The moves follow the European Commission’s order that Austria lift its ban on the import and processing of two EU-approved GM maize lines: insect-resistant MON810; and Bayer CropScience's glufosinate-tolerant T25 ( Agrow No 543, p 8). The order came after a WTO ruling that “scientifically unfounded” trade barriers to GM products in the EU be lifted. Co-Extra cites the Austrian Minister of Health, Andrea Kdolsky.
