THE National Bio-safety Authority (NBA) has granted Shoprite permission to start importing foodstuff that may contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
In compliance with the NBA Bio-safety Act No. 10 of 2007, subject to statutory instrument (SI) No 42 of 2010, and subject to securing an importation permit, Shoprite last year applied to the authority to start the importation of various food products which contain, or may contain, genetically modified soya.
