Protecting the availability of plant varieties and innovating with New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) will bolster the resilience and security of our food supply chain.

In this paper, FoodDrinkEurope provides our key recommendations on a framework for plants and products obtained from NGTs.


Any framework on NGTs should:

  • Align with similar regulatory practices around the world
