BRC/FDF Technical Standard
For the Supply of Identity Preserved Non-Genetically Modified Food Ingredients and Products
- British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Food and Drink Federation (FDF)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
This essential Standard sets out general guidance to enable crop and food manufacturers to establish, evaluate or verify an 'Identity Preserved' scheme, that facilitates the supply of non-genetically modified crops.
Essentially a guide to best practice, the aim of this publication is to focus resource at critical areas thus enabling crop and food manufacturers to exclude GM soya and maize from the Identity Preserved supply.
A single comprehensive standard covering the whole supply chain, from seed to consumer.
Clearly lays down the requirements for all those involved in the supply chain.
Provides confidence for industry and the consumer.
A wide acceptance of the system will permit a reduction in inspection levels, and hence costs.
It will allow smaller companies with restricted resources to supply non-GM materials.
Provides a framework for Identity Preserved systems for other commodities.
Facilitates international trade in non-GM materials.
'I believe the Standard will find many supporters requiring a clear and unambiguous yardstick which has clarified and structured the requirements for IP non-GM separation in a very useful way. The authors believe it will provide confidence for industry and the consumer, facilitating international trade and assisting smaller companies with restricted resources. These are worthy objectives which, if achieved, will provide that elusive property, the “level playing field”. It deserves to succeed.'
