UK: Grampian to begin production of non-GM animal feed
Grampian Country Food Group announced today that it is to begin manufacturing all of its poultry and pig feed with non-GM soya by June 2001. This decision has been taken in light of the recent requests by several of our retail customers to remove GM soya from our animal feeds. Commenting on this announcement Alban Denton, Grampian's Feeds Division Managing Director said; "We have been in negotiations with our supply base for some time to source the volume of non-GM soya we require for our five feed mills. With the support of our retail partners we are now in a position to offer a non-GM poultry and pig feed with the guarantee that it has been sourced from a hard IP scheme. Consumers will have the confidence that the livestock fed by Grampian will consume a non-GM diet."
