Many things are going out with the old year. Here is one: the term “GMO,” for “genetically modified organism.” The new term is “bioengineered.”
I spent part of my workday on Wednesday watching a rerun. It was of a Virtual Town Hall meeting entitled “Gene Editing: The Future of the Produce Industry?”, by the Produce Marketing Association, originally broadcast July 28.
Gene-edited food is different than genetically modified in several ways, and maybe most importantly, how it’s being communicated to consumers.
The Produce Marketing Association submitted comments on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Proposed Rule for Pesticides; Exemptions of Certain Plant Incorporated Protectants Derived from Newer Technologies.
Another Cotton Candy-inspired produce item? Well, it worked for grapes, I guess?
