Summary
Table of contents
 Public rejection of genetically engineered (GE) plants is widespread, there is no commercial GE crop production, the government has banned the planting of some EU-approved GE crops, and practically no foods labeled as “GMO” are sold in Germany. Despite this, Germany is home to world-class companies that develop and supply GE seeds globally. Germany’s livestock industry is a major consumer of imported GE soybeans for use as animal feed. However, the industry is under steady pressure to move away from GE feeds. GE animals are currently not topical in Germany.
