We do not use genetically modified ingredients in any of our own brand products. We have a comprehensive and continuous product sampling programme in place to help monitor this.
In addition, we do not accept products from cloned or GM animals.
Like other supermarkets, we are unable to guarantee that GM animal feed is not used in the supply chain for meat and dairy products, unless it’s organic. Such a promise would add to the strain on farmers and increase the pressure on food prices, given the declining availability of guaranteed non-GM feed.
We respect the fact that some customers do not wish to buy products from animals which may have been fed GM feed, and our organic range provides this assurance.
