EEC – The economic implications of the GMO court decision to the european beekeepers

The GMO Safety organisation from Germany says the fact pollen is now classified as a food ingredient could have ‘far-reaching’ consequences for beekeepers and the food industry, In future, pollen must be included in the list of ingredients, meaning every batch of honey will have to be analysed for the presence of pollen. “In any event,” it adds, “beekeepers are going to find themselves facing as yet unforseeable financial burdens and liability consequences.” The British Bee Keepers Association (BBKA) said in a statement it had been in contact with Defra and the Food Standards Agency, who had said they would be ‘considering the potential implications’ with the European Commission and other member states. The BBKA added it would be monitoring developments and assessing the possible effects both for its members and the public.
