Genetically Modified Foods
This publication discusses the issue of genetically modified (GM) foods in the UK, the rise of GM ingredients in processed foods from the US and the implications for UK and EU regulation and food labeling. The authors argue that virtually all plants used in agriculture are genetically modified in the sense that they are the products of selective breeding campaigns. The publication concludes that the UK's own position is heavily constrained in this area because any action taken across borders impacts substantially on the global agreements on trade.
