Poultry feed update

April 11, 2013 by The Co-operative Food

The amount of GM crops grown across the globe has increased rapidly and it’s becoming more and more difficult to have a continuous and guaranteed supply of non-GM soya for animal feed.

 

We’ve been working with suppliers to maintain non-GM feed for as long as practically possible, but this position is now becoming untenable. Our own-brand chicken and turkey supplier has informed us that they are no longer able to guarantee that the animal feed they are using is non-GM, so we are no longer able to guarantee to you that these animals have not been fed a non-GM diet.

 

We’ve looked for alternative ways to source non-GM feed, but the limited supplies of guaranteed non-GM feed available, and the increased costs to farmers and customers means this isn’t feasible.

 

Our shell egg supplier has also informed us that, they are having difficulties maintaining a guaranteed supply of non-GM soya, although they are continuing to look at ways to resolve this issue.

Rest assured the poultry and eggs themselves are not genetically modified and the European Food Safety Authority have stated that meat fed on GM soya is considered to be as safe as food from animals  fed a non-GM diet. GM feed poses no risk to either your safety or that of the animals it’s fed to. In fact, before any GM products can be used in the EU, the European Union has to verify it’s safe for human and animal health.

 

You can read more about our GM position and policy on our page here. Details of the FSA’s position can be found on their website www.food.gov.uk/policy-advice/gm/gmanimal.
