The French National Consumers' Council has taken on a label signifying that meat and dairy products have come from animals that have not been fed genetically modified feed, reports state.
Further reports state that the label "Nourri sans OGM" - "Fed without GMOs" - was adopted following a meeting at the Ministry for Finances which included representatives of "Que choisir" ["What to choose?"] and the food industry.
Nothing has given any evidence previously as to whether animals were reared on genetically modified products.
This label will apply to meat and dairy products.
