United Kingdom: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The United Kingdom’s anticipated exit from the European Union (Brexit) will not change policy or trade in genetically engineered plants or animals in the short to medium term. The UK represents 14 percent of EU imports of soy, corn-related and other animal feed products likely to be derived from genetic engineering. UK imports of GE animal feed are declining gradually, but livestock industries remain protein-deficient and timely European Union approvals of new GE crops remains key. Relevant for both GE plant and animal research, the UK will continue its curiosity-driven science base, and is aiming to have public-private partnerships fund more applied science over time.
