New factsheets: labelling of organic products, and gene technology

The new EU organic regulation has brought with it a number of important changes to the labelling of organic products. If you package and/or sell any organic produce, you need to read our new factsheet on Labelling of organic products: changes in the regulations.

The term 'genetic technology' embraces a wide range of techniques. Some these techniques the organic movement rejects outright, some it accepts, and there are others still under debate. Every specialist field has its own language, and understanding the jargon jungle is the first step in gaining a good understanding of the issues and the key to an informed debate. This factsheet sets out to demystify some of the terms you are most likely to come across, and to explain the context is which you are likely to hear them.
