The 2003 independent assessment of consumer opinion on the acceptability of GM food and how this related to consumer choice was the Agency's contribution to the Government's public debate on GM. The Board of the Agency considered the results of all these activities at a public meeting in Cardiff in May 2003. You can read the full report here.
You can watch the video-on-demand of three of these activities by clicking on the links below.
In our 2003 debate, some organisations highlighted their concerns about the science of GM not completely being understood and argued that there were significant uncertainties in the safety assessment of GM food. Links to some of their websites can be found under 'Non-Governmental organisations' and 'Professional organisations' in our Other views section, along with other GM-related links.
