Biotech Bits

The Irish coalition government (Fianna Faíl and the Green Party) has moved to ban the cultivation of all biotech crops and introduce a voluntary biotech-free label for food, including meat, poultry, eggs, fish, crustaceans, and dairy products made without the use of transgenic animal feed. The policy was adopted as part of the Renewed Program for Government agreed to between the two coalition partners, after the Greens had voted to support it late last month. The agreement specifies that the government will "Declare the Republic of Ireland a GM-Free Zone, free from the cultivation of all GM plants." However, no such declaration has yet been made.
