Brussels, 1 September 2023
– KEY MESSAGES-
We invite EU lawmakers to stand firmly on the side of agroecology, which excludes gene editing.
Should NGTs be allowed:
- mandatory traceability and labelling of all products obtained through NGTs along the supply chain will be necessary for organic operators to fulfill the NGT prohibition
- the additional costs related to prevention and monitoring of NGTs in the organic supply chain must be borne by NGT manufacturers, as well as a compensation to the organic operator when damage -presence of NGT material- is confirmed.
