Non-prepacked food

2 weeks ago | 1 min

For non-prepacked food offered to the final consumer, the words ‘This product contains genetically modified organisms’ or ‘This product contains genetically modified [name of organism(s)]’ must appear on or near the display of the product, for example on a shelf edge label, on a menu or on a notice.

Where the food is offered for sale to the ultimate consumer as non-prepacked or as prepacked in small containers, of which the largest surface has an area of less than 10 cm², the information must be permanently and visibly displayed either on the food display or immediately next to it, or on the packaging material, in sufficiently large print for it to be easily read. For example, ‘Bread produced from genetically modified maize.’
