Poland: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual
Link to report:
Poland opposes the use of genetic engineering in agriculture. Although the current regulatory framework technically allows genetically engineered (GE) seeds to enter commerce, the law stipulates they cannot be planted. While Poland’s 2006 Feed Act includes provisions banning livestock feed containing GE ingredients, they have never been enforced and have been postponed several times. In December 2022 the Government of Poland (GOP) issued another two-year postponement of the provisions which ban GE feed ingredients, including U.S. soybean meal, until January 1, 2025. The Polish meat industry is putting pressure on the government to once again suspend the import ban contained in the law.
