Position Paper by COCERAL, FEDIOL and FEFAC on the New Genomic Techniques proposal  31/10/2023

COCERAL, FEDIOL and FEFAC welcome a balanced proposal that acknowledges the potential of NGTs to contribute to the transition to more sustainable food systems, in line with societal expectations and the Green Deal strategy, including the Farm to Fork objectives. At the same time, attention should be paid to avoid trade disruption and preserve farmers and other operators of the feed and food chain from misuse of certain provisions (labelling, coexistence) in a way that would make production, use, and trade of NGT products hardly possible.
