75% of Bulgarians Favour Introduction of Optional GMO-Free Food Standard

About 75% of Bulgarians favour the possible introduction of an optional GMO-Free Standard to guarantee that food products do not contain any genetically modified organisms, not even in quantities which are below the legal GMO labelling threshold, according to a nationwide representative poll conducted by the Market Links consulting firm and unveiled by the non-governmental organization For The Earth (FTE).
An even higher proportion of 78.4% of respondents want the standard to also ensure that animal-based foods were made from animals whose feed was GMO-free, the FTE-commissioned poll shows.
The news comes at a time when a Food Bill, which has been discussed for more than a year now, is due for a second reading in the National Assembly. The original version of the bill stipulated that a GMO-Free Standard would be established by an Agriculture Ministry ordinance for the entire farm-to-table chain.
