Greens say EU needs tougher import rules on feed crops

European consumers who have little appetite for genetically modified foods are indirectly eating the crops anyway through imported feed crops, say members of the Greens group in the European Parliament who are calling for a shift in trade and farming practices.

The Greens yesterday (9 November) urged the European Commission to rethink its trade ties with Latin American nations in the Mercosur trade bloc that grow a large part of the protein plants used in animal feed in Europe.

The political group also wants the Commission to strengthen agricultural policies that promote diversity and reduce imports of such plants.
