Why are US and EU Policies toward GMOS Different?

Cover Page

Abstract


The development of genetically modified (GM) agricultural products requires new policies to manage potential food safety and environmental risks. The policy on GM foods by the United States and the European Union are very different. The US has few restrictions on production and trade in GM food products and no costly labeling requirements, whereas the EU has close to a ban on the production and importation of GM foods. This paper seeks to explain why the US and the EU policies are different.
