Further update on GM pollen in honey

Parliament clarifies labelling rules for honey if contaminated by GM pollen

The European Parliament today (Wednesday 15 January 2014) voted on draft labelling rules for honey if contaminated by GM pollen. Parliament endorsed the draft rules defining pollen as a natural constituent of honey rather than an ingredient. For the full European Parliament press release see here.

The BBKA will keep members informed on the progress of this process.
