Europes grocers firm against GM-fed meat
LEADING supermarkets across Europe are challenging the Continents farmers to produce without using genetically modified (GM) material, reports The Herald.
They are signatories to a deal that will stop any GM product being included in feeding materials for cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry.
Dr Chris Brown of Marks & Spencer (M&S) said the drive for GM-free produce would not be diverted by any moves by non-European countries, including the USA.
M&S also announced a £1 million investment in backing agricultural shows throughout Britain.
This includes a £450,000 roadshow which will be seen at the Royal Highland Show at Ingliston, Edinburgh, in June.
