The Russian Government has decided to completely ban the use of any and all genetically modified ingredients in food production.


Victory! Following news of Scotland and Germany opting to ban genetically modified foods, news has surfaced of the Russian Government completely banning the use of genetically modified ingredients in any and all food production.

During an international conference on biotechnology, Deputy PM Arkady Dvorkovich stated:

“As far as genetically-modified organisms are concerned, we have made decision not to use any GMO in food productions.”


Basically, Russia flew past the issue of GMO labeling and shut down the use of any and all genetically modified foods that would have otherwise entered the food supply through packaged foods (and the cultivation of GMO crops).

For anti-GMO proponents, this is huge, exciting news.

To put the bold move into perspective, imagine what effect this would have in the United States. Completely banning GM crops and their inclusion in processed foods would mean a total transformation of the food manufacturing industry. But, of course, Russia and the United States are anything but parallel on this issue; 90%+ of the staple crops like corn and soy grown in the United States are genetically modified. Much work needs to be done before America is ready to embrace a GMO food revolution like Russia.

As Russia Today reports:

“According to official statistics the share of GMO in the Russian food industry has declined from 12 percent to just 0.01 percent over the past 10 years, and currently there are just 57 registered food products containing GMO in the country. The law ordering obligatory state registration of GMO products that might contact with the environment will come into force in mid-2017.”


President Vladamir intends to keep genetically modified foods out of Russia while staying in compliance with the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) commandments. As Natural Society shares, in a past meeting addressing the members of the Board of the Russian Federation Council he stated:

“We need to properly construct our work so that it is not contrary to our obligations under the WTO. But even with this in mind, we nevertheless have legitimate methods and instruments to protect our own market, and above all citizens.”
