Austria pushes GMO-free charter

Austria has drafted a "charter for biotechnology freedom" to guarantee farmers and consumers choice about genetically modified crops. "We have to take advantage of all possibilities to satisfy farmers' and consumers' demands for freedom from GM crops," Minister of Environment Josef Proll explains.

The charter guidelines are to be integrated in a national biotechnology strategy that the country's authorities are in the process of drawing up.
