“GMO free” labeling may be cancelled in Ukraine

Manufacturers and importers will be required to indicate information on the presence in food of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) provided that their share in the product exceeds 0.9%. As the Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry press service informs, the bill on amendments to some Ukrainian laws on informing about the presence in food of genetically modified organisms was approved at the Cabinet’s meeting on October 3.
