German supermarkets demand non-GMO fed poultry

chickensGermany supermarkets are demanding Germany poultry producers stop using GMO feed for both egg and poultry meat production, effective Jan. 1, 2015. In February, the German Poultry Association had declared it was stopping using GM-free animal feed due to an alleged shortage of GMO-free soybeans. However, Germany supermarkets consulting with Brazilian authorities determined that that there was enough Brazilian GMO-feed to supply Europe’s needs. German retailers have also indicated they will demand a completely GMO-free feed supply chain for dairy, pork and beef as a next step.
