EuropaBio comments related to “Labelling of food enzymes, additives and flavourings produced by Genetically Modified Micro-organisms (GMM)”

RE: AMENDMENTS 8-25 – Draft recommendation for second reading on the Council common position for adopting a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on food enzymes and amending Council Directives 83/417/EEC, Council Regulation (EC) No 1493/1999, Directive 2000/13/EC, Council Directive 2001/112/EC and Regulation (EC) No 258/97

EuropaBio does not support the re-tabling of amendments for labelling of food enzymes, additives and flavouring produced from or with GMOs (including Genetically Modified Micro-organisms). Today food ingredients (excluding processing aids) derived from GM plants, GM animals and food containing GM micro-organisms must have an indication of the GM status on the label. The same goes for food enzymes derived from GM plants or GM animals, and not used as processing aids.
