Polish producers want to delay GM ban

Polish farmers and feed companies asked the president to sign a law that delays the introduction of rules banning the use of genetically modified animal feeds. If not, GM feeds are forbidden from September 12.

The president of the National Poultry Council Romuald Paczkowski says a ban on feed containing GMOs would cause poultry prices to increase by an average 10%.

Each day without the amended law in place is causing losses because feed producers do not know whether to contract feeds which will be banned after September 12.
