EEC – Potential costs arising from GM honey ruling

A recent GM honey ruling could have huge cost implications for the European food industry, with the UK’s food safety agency calling for greater clarity from Brussels on the interpretation of the European Court of Justice’s decision. September saw the EU Court of Justice, the highest court in the bloc, ruling that honey containing traces of pollen from genetically modified (GM) plants must receive prior authorisation before it can be sold as food in the EU. Prior to the Court’s decision, foodstuffs containing honey were not required to declare the presence of pollen on their labels.  The verdict could have a detrimental impact on European imports of honey from countries such as Argentina where GM crops are widely grown.
