In order to ensure that the development of modern biotechnology, and more specifically of GMOs, takes place in complete safety, the European Union has established a legal framework. The regulation on genetically modified food and feed provides general framework for regulating genetically modified (GM) food and feed in the EU. This framework pursues the global objective of ensuring a high level of protection of human life and health and welfare, environment and consumer interests, whilst ensuring that the internal market works effectively. This stockshot illustrates fields of Genetically Modified Corn, a factory producing animal food with GM corn flour and a farmer feeding his animals with that, in Huesca, Spain. This shooting took place in July 2013.
