Poland: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

Poland currently opposes of the use of genetic engineering (GE) in agriculture and Polish law prohibits the cultivation of GE crops. On January 1, 2019, a ban on imported feed derived from GE crops is scheduled to enter into force. However, there is strong pressure from Poland’s livestock industry on the Government of Poland (GOP) to provide an additional suspension of the ban and allow local poultry and livestock producers to continue using imported soybean meal. Public consultations are underway regarding non-GE product labeling.
