Hungary Set To Adopt EU GMO Regulations First
Hungary could become the first EU member state to implement the union’s new directive on the possibility of restricting the cultivation of genetically modified organisms (GMO), a farm ministry official said. Speaking on the sidelines of the GMO-Free Europe conference in Berlin, deputy state secretary András Rácz said that aside from implementing the European Union’s directive on the possibility for member states to restrict or prohibit the cultivation of GMOs in their territory, the Hungarian government is also looking to finalise a new labelling system.

The system would allow for meat, fish, eggs and honey to get GMO-free labelling.
