Fonterra and GM

  • We strongly support science and innovation. We are not anti-genetic modification (GM) and see genuine value in maintaining optionality with regard to the use of technology, and the possibilities offered by new and emerging life science technologies such as gene editing that could offer significant benefits for sustainable nutrition, animal welfare, human health, biosecurity and the environment

  • We also listen carefully to our consumers and customers and recognise the value in New Zealand’s global reputation for its GM status, as supported by the current New Zealand regulatory framework

  • Our products do not contain GMOs and we have not released or commercialised any GMOs.
