Views sought on GMO-free status

Brand Tasmania Partners are being urged to have their say on what our GMO-free status means for Tasmania’s brand.

Tasmania’s current five-year moratorium expires in November 2019, and the Terms of Reference for the latest GMO review have just been released.

The consultation phase will begin in January, and the State Government is particularly keen to hear from producers, retailers, wholesalers and exporters on matters such as: 

  • Products sold in domestic or international markets as ‘Tasmanian’ and/or ‘GMO-free’
  • Market opportunities gained or lost as a result of Tasmania’s GMO moratorium
  • The impact on the business if Tasmania’s GMO moratorium was to lapse
  • The impact on food markets if non-food GM crops were grown commercially in Tasmania, and
  • Evidence of the financial benefits or costs to a business as a result of the current moratorium.

Details on submissions will be outlined shortly on DPIPWE GMO web page
