Sri Lanka postpones GM food ban

(June 12, 2001 CropChoice news) Sri Lanka has postponed its ban on the importation of all transgenic food until September to give food traders more time to comply with the order and to process the food that had been ordered before the ban was to have commenced on May 1.

The regulation, which affects about 4 percent of U.S. food exports to Sri Lanka, covers transgenic preservatives, additives, soy beans, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, beets and beet sugar, yeast, cheese and other foods.
