Victory! Following news of Scotland and Germany opting to ban genetically modified foods, news has surfaced of the Russian Government completely banning the use of genetically modified ingredients in any and all food production.
During an international conference on biotechnology, Deputy PM Arkady Dvorkovich stated:
“As far as genetically-modified organisms are concerned, we have made decision not to use any GMO in food productions.”
Basically, Russia flew past the issue of GMO labeling and shut down the use of any and all genetically modified foods that would have otherwise entered the food supply through packaged foods (and the cultivation of GMO crops).
For anti-GMO proponents, this is huge, exciting news.
