Alleged non-declaration of GMO use

To Press Releases listJohannesburg,Mar 14, 2012

Today we have been made aware of a study commissioned by the African Centre for Biosafety (ACB) regarding one of our products that contains GM Maize and according to ACB should be labelled as such.

We are in the process of obtaining the study so that we can issue an informed response as soon as possible

Since 2011 the industry has through the CGCSA been seeking guidance and clarity on the interpretation of the regulations.

The safety of our products and the integrity of the ingredients from which they are manufactured are paramount to Nestlé.
