Ban on animal cloning for food production
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The Group expressed this position in a letter to MEP Kartika Tamara Liotard, rapporteur for the Novel Foods Regulation. The European Parliament stays firm on the position to ban sale of food not only from clones themselves, but also from their offsprings and further descendents. In the framework of the Novel Foods Regulation dossier (including also the controversial issue of nanotechnologies), informal "trilogue" meetings between the Parliament, the Council and the Commission have started as a step towards formal negotiations. More information on the IFOAM EU Group's position on animal cloning is avilable at IFOAM EU – positions on animal cloning.
