GM in the UK
No GM crops are grown commercially in the UK, thanks to strict EU rules, though experimental GM field trials are taking place.
Our Safeguard our Farms campaign aims to ensure that Brexit does not mean an open door for unregulated GM.
In the UK, food containing GM ingredients (including cooking oil) has to be labelled with the words genetically modified. UK consumers consistently reject labelled GM foods so there are few of those for sale, but that could all change when the UK leaves the European Union. Our Don’t Hide What’s Inside campaign aims to keep GM ingredients clearly labelled.
Food made from animals that have been fed GM crops does not have to be labelled. As a result GM-fed meat, eggs and dairy products are widespread.Our Feed me the Truth campaign tackles the use of GM animal feed
