Policies for labelling genetically modified products would be drawn up within three months, announced Thai Public Health Minister Sudarat Keyuraphan this week, reports Thai newspaper, the Bangkok Post. "Three months is not too long a time. What we're concerned about is the health of consumers and our exports. "There is no clear information about the safety of the products and the policies we issue will likely affect our exports,"​ she said. While policies would be drawn up on the basis of Codex (a joint effort between the Food and Agriculture Organisation​ and World Health Organisation​), officials would not wait for final resolutions from the grouping. Food and Drug staff had been asked to work with the Agriculture and Co-operatives Ministry in gathering details on food products likely to contain GMO's. Source: Bangkok Post
