Consumers want clearer GM labelling, says report

Consumers think that current labelling regulation for genetically modified (GM) foods is inadequate, according to a new report from the UK’s Food Standards Agency.

The report used a combination of surveys, workshops and interviews to explore consumer attitudes to GM foods, as well as how those attitudes are formed. The general consensus was that consumers think labels should flag all GM processes in foods, including products made using GM technology or animals fed GM animal feed, which do not currently have to be labelled.
