Serbia blocks cultivation, import of GMOs

Serbia’s Ministry of Agriculture has announced that it will not allow the cultivation or import of genetically modified crops for human consumption.

The law on GMOs in Serbia, which has been enforced since 2009, allows for genetic modification up to 0.9 percent, “which creates enough room even for experimental modifications.”

“Changing the current law on GMOs would bring order to the market, products would have labels on them and consumers would have information about the contents of the food they buy,” the ministry said.

Serbia’s legislation would be aligned with the EU legislation in this area, which is the most restrictive in the world.
