Political focus on economy and trade, as well as attention on food security/climate change/population growth has led to an increased awareness of the role that biotechnology can play in United Kingdom (UK) access to biotechnology. The UK is a strong proponent of more efficient and effective regulation of genetically engineered crops within Europe. Increasing global adoption of biotech, and EU restrictions on unapproved biotech events in the food and animal feed chains are affecting the availability and the cost of non-biotech ingredients. In light of this, supermarket chains are reviewing their policies and changes in favor of biotech have taken place. In time, the food industry may have greater confidence to incorporate more products of genetically engineered crops in the supply chain.
