The regulation of GMOs in Taiwan is a complex story, as is the case worldwide, and the interplay of politics, science and business behind the scenes constantly modulates legislation, research and trade activities on the surface.
Non GMO product positioning continues to gain importance in the marketplace, but the search for compliant excipients still complicates the claim for supplements. A suite of ingredients that will be on display next week in Chicago can help.
Lobby groups have come out in support of a Western Australian farmer who will challenge the WA Supreme Court’s decision to overrule his claim that his land had been contaminated by genetically modified canola grown by his neighbour.
As more genetically modified crops are being grown around the globe, the number of incidents of low levels of GMOs is being detected in traded food and feed, according to a survey by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation.
India is expecting to post its highest ever level of foodgrain production this year, according to the country’s agriculture minister, who is hopeful that a bumper yield will cool down the fast-rising food prices that have been a feature of the last six...
China’s food safety authorities have really been ramping up their charm offensive in the last month. Not only have bodies like the China Food and Drug Administration been seen a flurry of activity in introducing new regulations and policing their patch,...
Japan will not lift its ban on US Western White wheat imports until the American government provides detailed information on the extent of unauthorized genetically modified wheat found in Oregon, a government official says.
India’s government is working hard to reach a consensus among scientists, politicians, farmers and consumers to reach a solution on the vexed issue of genetically modified crops, according to the country’s science and technology minister.
India has hotly debated the use of GM crops both on a societal and political level. The discussion around the issue is at most times primal. Travel tip? You would be well advised not to use this as an ice-breaker in any of the leftist states.
Over 150 Indian scientists have united to call public attention to the Ministry of Agriculture, which they believe has been making a political case for genetically modified crops to counter concerns of food security.
Will they, won’t they or might they? In spite of a report filed by a panel of Indian agriculture experts calling for the government to impose a moratorium on open field trials of GM crops, the Supreme Court (SC)—which commissioned the report—has refused...
Japan's leading chocolate maker Meiji Seika has recalled a range of
confectionery products, after it was discovered that they contained
a novel sweetener made with an unapproved genetically modified
Australia can adopt commercialised genetically modified (GM) canola
production without compromising its organic agriculture, say new
findings from the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and
Resource Economics (ABARE).
China, potentially one of the most promising markets for
genetically modified (GM) crops, is stalling the adoption of
transgenic plant cultivation as a cautious government ponders their
