Although Saudi Arabia has adopted regulations that allow for the import of biotech seeds, Saudi farmers have not shown an interest in importing or planting biotech seeds. Saudi Arabia requires that products must be labeled if they contain more than one percent genetically engineered (GE) plant or microbial ingredients. As a result, the import of biotech retail food products is extremely limited. However, Saudi Arabia imports large quantities of biotech U.S. corn and soybeans. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Standardization Organization (GSO) regulations prohibit the import of genetically modified animals, birds, fish and their products. Currently, there are no ongoing commercial development activities for GE plants in Saudi Arabia.
