Reports on studies conducted in The Netherlands on consumer attitudes to food products which involve the use of biotechnology. Finds that transgenic animals were not acceptable whereas genetically modified plants or micro‐organisms were likely to be accepted, especially when there are clear...
Discusses the importance of effective risk‐benefit communication about genetic engineering in food production. The consumer, industry and science are all likely to benefit from the creation of an “informed consumer”. There is a need to develop strategies to maximize the effectiveness of...
Presents the views of farmers and growers on the use of biotechnology in the production of food. Identifies many significant benefits for consumers and producers. However, the National Farmers’ Union has a number of concerns about the technology, and recognizes that farmers and growers will...
Explains the principles and purposes of patenting. Discusses the role of patenting plant variety rights and other protection in relation to developments in plant and animal biotechnology. Concludes that protection is needed to reward success and encourage man to develop products which will feed...
Describes the work of the Advisory Working Group in Biotechnology established by the Institute of Grocery Distribution. This brought together representatives from a range of interests in the food chain to identify problems in relation to public acceptability of foods which involve the use of...
Enzymes present in raw food materials can play a key role in processing. Biotechnology can be used to manipulate and employ enzymes in food production. Presents several case studies, including the production of chymosin by a genetically engineered micro‐organism for use in the manufacture of...
Animal production is still a major UK industry of about £10 billion and like all aspects of agriculture faces a number of challenges. The biotechnology revolution is also sweeping through the industry with a range of major emerging technologies becoming available. Describes these technologies...
Explores the scope for using genetically modified organisms by undertaking a survey which considered awareness (knowledge) of and policy implications for both the UK food retailer and manufacturer. Uses interviews and a postal questionnaire. Finds that the UK food retailing industry is generally...
Genetic engineering offers an opportunity to improve aspects of the agronomic performance, resistance to pests and pathogens and end use quality of crops by inserting specific genes. Discusses the basic principles and procedures of plant genetic engineering, including the use of particle...
This study employs a focus group methodology to examine the factors affecting the acceptability of gene technology in food production, using genetically modified (GM) farmed salmon as a focus for the research. The results identified a small group of “triers” ‐ willing to try any GM food...
