EC pushes Austria to use GM feed

30-10-2007 | |

The European Commission (EC) wants to push Austria to start using GM corn varieties for use in animal feed and food.

This can be concluded from the agenda from the
European Environmental Board, to be held today. 

In a previous
attempt, the European Commission tried to make Austria produce the
genetically modified corn. This attempt was not succesfull in a sense
that the commission accepted the Austrian ban on GM
products. This time, the commission “only” asks for the sale and use of the products.
