LMP submits draft decree against new GMO technologies
“One hears about attempts aimed at bringing food of unknown origin to the table of Hungarians,” Peter Ungar told a press conference.
Ors Tetlak, an LMP board member, told the same press conference that multinational chemical and seed companies are lobbying regulators to change GMO rules and allow their new GMO technology products to be exempted. Those companies also seek exemption from rules on GMO labelling, he said. “The European Commission seems to yield to the multi-s with which they put food security at risk,” Tetlak said.
Ungar said that LMP’s draft decree also calls for increasing domestic and EU funding for green farming.
