A food guide revealing which companies are believed to be using undeclared genetically engineered ingredients will step into a breach left by the Government's failure to reform inadequate food labelling laws, the guide's publishers say.
Greenpeace released its Truefood Guide yesterday, with Cadbury, Western Star, Kraft and Woolworths, along with the baby food producers Karicare and Nutricia, among the dozens of companies named because they either do not have a clear non-GE policy or have refused to reveal whether they use GE ingredients in their products.
Nestle, Foster's and Schweppes are among the hundreds of companies listed which have instituted a ban on the use of GE ingredients.
