Here in Britain, our Food Standards Agency (FSA) is subject to rules from the European Union (EU – this link shows a map) about genetically modified foods. That’s genetically modified as in GM, also called genetically engineered or GE. We’re legally entitled to know whether the foods we buy and eat are from GM crops or livestock, and whether they’ve been made using products from GM.
The FSA tells us about its current policy on GM labelling. You can scroll down for a summary of what is labelled, and what isn’t labelled. But that policy might have to change when the EU and our international trading partners go into negotiations this month.
