Russia - Legislative Bill Introduced to Require GM Food Labeling

On 1 February FoodBizDaily.com reported that members of the Russian Parliament had introduced a bill that would require Russian food producers to label any products containing genetically modified (GM) food.  The requirement would apply to any product containing 0.9% of its goods derived from GM crops.  The label would have to be "at least 20% of the advertising space of the package."  This same bill allows Russian food producers whose products do not contain GM food to label their foods with a label reading "Does not contain GMOs."
