Under the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, which took effect Jan. 1, the US now requires mandatory bioengineered disclosure on foods containing genetically engineered ingredients.

 

Join Greg Jaffe, an internationally recognized expert on agricultural biotechnology and biosafety, as he walks us through the ABCs of the new requirement. He’ll share examples from labels he recently found in the grocery store and leave plenty of time for questions.

 

Greg is the associate director of policy and regulatory affairs for the Alliance for Science, as well as director of the Project on Biotechnology for the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). He holds a law degree from Harvard Law School and previously served as a trial attorney for the US Department of Justice’s Environmental and Natural Resources Division and as senior counsel with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Enforcement Division.
