?NO GMO? LABEL TAKEN ON BY FRANCE

The French National Consumers Council has taken on a label signifying that meat and dairy products have come from animals that have not been fed genetically modified feed, reports state. Further reports state that the label ?Nourri sans OGM? - ?Fed without GMOs? - was adopted following a meeting at the Ministry for Finances which included representatives of ?Que choisir? [?What to choose??] and the food industry. Nothing has given any evidence previously as to whether animals were reared on genetically modified products. This label will apply to meat and dairy products.
