Lidl Germany has announced that all its Milbona own-brand milk is now GMO-free.
The retailer, which has placed the ‘Ohne Gentechnik’ (GMO-free) label on its milk packaging says that the move follows on from a “growing consumer demand for GM-free products”.
In order to support its suppliers in producing GM-free dairy products, Lidl pays an agreed surcharge to farmers.
"Looking ahead, we can put in our dairy products exclusively GMO-free certified products and thus follow the ever increasing demands of consumers,” a Lidl spokesperson said.
