GMO and seeds

Slow Food is against the commercial planting of genetically modified (GM) crops and works to promote GM-free food and animal feed.

With genetically modified organisms (GMOs) we risk transforming our food into a patented commodity controlled by a few multinationals and stripping farmers and consumers of their rights.

GMOs are unreliable from a scientific point of view, inefficient in economic terms and environmentally unsustainable. Little is known about them from a health perspective and from a technical standpoint they are obsolete. They have severe social impact, threatening traditional food cultures and the livelihoods of small-scale farmers.

We support mandatory labeling of all products containing GM ingredients, including meat and dairy products where animals have been fed with GM feed, thus giving consumers the freedom to make an educated choice about what they eat.

Slow Food is actively engaged (Slow Food Europe in Brussels) against the intentions of the EU commission, under high pressure from the industry, to consider the „New Breeding Technics“ (NBT – CRISPR Cas and more) non GMO and not submitted to the GMO legislation (including licences and public announcements).

What are GMOs:

Nordic GMO nettverket:
(„GMO-nettverket fungerer som en paraplyorganisasjon for organisasjoner, bedrifter og andre private eller offentlige institusjoner som støtter vårt formål. GMO-nettverket er livsnøytral og partipolitisk uavhengig.“ – „The GMO network acts as an umbrella organization for organizations, companies and other private or public institutions that support our purpose. The GMO network is life-neutral and politically independent.“)
