Germany set to launch ‘non-GM’ label

January 19, 2008

The German Agriculture Ministry is to introduce a special label for food that has not been genetically modified, in a move to create greater transparency for consumers.

Agriculture state secretary Gert Lindemann told German broadcaster Deutsche Welle that the new ‘non-GM’ label will apply not only to non-genetically-modified crops but to eggs, meat and milk from animals that were raised without biotech feed.

He said the move was aimed to protect consumers’ rights.
