Germany: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

Public rejection of genetically engineered (GE) plants in Germany is widespread; there is no commercial GE crop production and practically no foods labeled as Genetically Modified Organisms (“GMO”) on the market. Despite this, Germany is home to world-class companies that develop and supply GE seeds globally. Germany’s livestock industry is a major consumer of imported GE soybeans for use as animal feed. The next federal election is in September 2017, and GE policy might be subject to change.
