Germany: Voluntary GMO-Free Labeling Program Generates 11 Billion Dollars

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Although Germany does not require labeling of non-GMO food products and animal feed, the nation’s voluntary “Ohne Gentechnik” (GMO-free) labeling program is gaining momentum. Sales of “Ohne Gentechnik” foods generated 11 billion dollars in sales in Germany in 2018. German consumers’ increasing awareness of and preference for “Ohne Gentechnik”-labeled foods is also driving demand in the market for GMO-free animal feed, leading to marketing opportunities for growers and producers of non-GMO feed ingredients and additives, while eroding demand for U.S. exports of genetically engineered soy.
