‘No GMO’ label taken on by France

The French National Consumers Council has taken on a label signifying that meat and dairy products have come from animals that have not been fed genetically modified feed.

Reports state that the label “Nourri sans OGM” – “Fed without GMOs” – was adopted following a meeting at the Ministry for Finances which included representatives of “Que choisir” [“What to choose?”] and the food industry.

Nothing has given any evidence previously as to whether animals were reared on genetically modified products.

This label will apply to meat and dairy products.
