Genetic engineering for sustainable food systems?

Live Webinar

The European Commission has said the current EU legislation on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is “not fit for purpose” for some GM technologies and their products. It believes these products can “contribute to sustainable food systems“ and should be regulated differently from other GMOs. 

The Commission therefore plans to exclude certain GM plants from the EU requirements for GMO authorisation, traceability and labelling.

But what would that mean for our food, farmers and nature? Would it really help to make EU farming more sustainable? 

We have discussed the Commission’s plan with a scientist, a farmer, a plant breeder and a non-GMO certifier, as well as a representative from the European Commission itself.
