Hong Kong

In February 2001, the Hong Kong government proposed that food containing more than 5% GM materials should be labelled:

  • Under proposals developed by HK government, the food industry will been encouraged to voluntarily label its GM products, or legislation will be brought in to make labelling mandatory
  • public consultation process currently underway
  • concerns expressed by HK government, which has suggested that the new labelling regime should ensure that the supply and cost of food would not be adversely affected.
  • according to Hong Kong¹s Secretary of the Environment and Food Bureau, implementation of labelling requirements is at least two years away

(For further details, go to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service Report on Hong Kong Voluntary Labelling of GM foods)
