GMO testing by the experts

Sidebar Image

The further expansion of commercially planted GMO regions increases the need for testing and analysis by companies who produce food, feed or seed. A carefully designed testing program will ensure that companies meet strict regulations in a timely and efficient manner while keeping their customers safe and reassured.

Asynchronous approval situations, where a GMO is approved for commercialisation in one country in comparison to another country, have an impact on the market value and marketability of a product. Thus, it is important to know the GMO approval situation of the country of origin of the raw materials as well as the regulatory situation of the country where the final products will be placed on the market.
