The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) has requested that the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative initiates steps to resolve the failure of the EU to accept GM grains. The AFBF contends that the EU has “failed to comply with its WTO obligations to provide for a science-based, timely and predictable process for regulatory review of agriculture and food technology products.”

GMOs in the EU have made progress though. According to the Animal Agri Business Policy Report, the EU recently approved six corn varieties incorporating genetic modification for both food and animal feed.
