Austria: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

This report includes information on the plant and animal biotechnology situation in Austria. Austria continues to be one of the leading forces in Europe opposed to the use of agricultural biotechnology. Anti-biotech NonGovernmental Organizations (NGOs), farmer organizations, the food-processing sector, and the retail sector all campaign against genetically engineered (GE) agricultural and food products. Soybeans and soybean products are the only major GE product imported by Austria. Although not broadly discussed in the public, innovative biotechnologies have a higher acceptance within informed Austrian stakeholder groups.
