Poland: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Poland opposes of the use of genetic engineering (GE) in agriculture. Although the current regulatory framework technically allows GE seeds to enter commerce, by law they cannot actually be planted. Although Poland imports GE soybean meal for poultry and livestock, the 2006 Feed Act prohibits animal feeds with GE ingredients. In 2019, Poland’s Parliament postponed the provisions under the 2006 Feed Act which ban GE feed for two years. Beginning January 1, 2020, Poland will have a new voluntary labeling standard to label non-GE food products, foods of animal-origin produced without GE feeds, and for non-GE feeds.
