Australia is set to remain a GM Free Food Producer, even though the federal authorities have recently approved two GM canola varieties for commercial release.

To date, five of Australia’s eight states have introduced or are in the process of introducing moratoria on outdoor GM food production. These 5 states cover all regions where canola is grown.

Measures range from a specific ban on GM canola to moratoria on all GM food crops.
