The Food Standards Agency advises that ‘EC Regulation 1829/2003 on genetically modified food and feed’ requires that food derived from genetically modified (GM) sources must be labelled, regardless of the presence of detectable GM material in the final product or of the quantity of intentionally used GM ingredients. This regulation applies to all food that is marketed in the United Kingdom and in other member states.
