Feed without GMO-content

Level: Spearhead

EU legislation is restrictive with regards to approving the cultivation and import of GMO crops. The use of GMOs in feed is however common in the EU, mainly soya feed, and production mainly takes place outside of the EU.1 For soya 78% of the globally cultivated area is for genetically modified crops.2 Contracting authorities that aim to avoid GMOs being used in the production of foodstuffs of animal origin can request that products should come from animals that have not eaten GMO fodder.
