Irish pledge to ban GM crops

Ireland plans to ban the cultivation of genetically modified crops in line with a proposed renewed programme for government between the coalition partners, Fianna Fáil and the Green Party. They have been governing the country since 2007. The programme states that the coalition partners will “declare the Republic of Ireland a GM-free zone”. The intention behind the move has been stated as the optimisation of Ireland’s competitive advantage as a GMO-free country. It also proposes the introduction of a voluntary GMO-free logo for use in all relevant product labelling and advertising.
