EU Member States and GMOs

Description



Almost all soya is provided by South and North American countries, where GM technology adoption is over 90%. In total, the EU imports approximately 35 million tonnes (MT) per year or over 60 kg of soya bean products per citizen (including crushed soya meal). Soya beans primarily feed our cows, pigs and chickens, helping EU livestock farms prosper which drives EU exports, jobs and growth.
