GMO – Genetically modified organisms

In our certificates you can find statements on the GMO status of our products in accordance with the most up-to-date European legislation.

Customer issue

Genetic modification, an important tool to develop plant types with new resistant characteristics, has developed greatly in recent 50 years, and legislation has developed accordingly. Since 2004, new legislation is in effect on labelling GMO in all EU countries. It makes the labelling of more products mandatory. Any known use of genetic modification appears on food labels so that consumers can make use of this information in their decision to buy. Thus as a manufacturer for end consumers, you need to know whether a specific product contains GMO or if material is produced from GMO. A threshold value was set since scant traces of GMO soy and corn can be found almost everywhere by now, regardless of whether included deliberately.

Benefits for you

It is essential for you as manufacturer to build up and retain customer confidence. You need to show that you are responsive to consumer concerns. EMD Millipore even goes beyond the legal requirements, making certificates available for products that are not yet on the EU’s list.
