Waitrose: only retailer maintaining ban on GM poultry feed

12 Apr

Alistair Driver reports today in the Farmers Guardian:

FOUR leading UK supermarkets have responded to industry pressure by dropping their bans on the use of genetically modified (GM) ingredients in poultry feed.

Following Tesco’s announcement on Thursday, Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencer and the Co-op have followed suit by announcing they, too, have no option but to start permitting GM poultry feed. Asda and Morrisons already allow GM feed for poultry products, leaving Waitrose as the only retailer maintaining its ban on GM rations.
