Genetically modified food may be slowly disappearing from New Zealand supermarket shelves, as more and more food manufacturers shun the technology, reports the New Zealand Herald. Greenpeace True Food​ web site classes companies in the "red" if their products might contain GM ingredients or if company policy supports genetic modification; in the "amber" category if companies are committed to being GM-free but are not yet sure their products do not contain GM ingredients; and in the "green" category for guaranteed GM-free products. The information on the website was supplied from the companies, said Greenpeace spokesman Ben Bond. "It is a good result. It is nice to see companies moving away from GM but we w ill not be happy until the New Zealand food chain is GM-free altogether."​ About ten companies have moved from a red category to amber since the website was created, including Unilever, the anglo-dutch consumer product giant. Five companies have moved from the amber category to the green, meaning they are now guaranteed GM-free. Source: New Zealand Herald
