Abstract: At the present time, the genetically modified organism (GMO) issue is rapidly emerging as the next big theme in European food production post-BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy). The key question in this context is the degree to which the release of GMO-containing food products onto the United Kingdom (UK) market (and the associated press coverage) will further damage consumer confidence in the food supply chain and influence the types of food which consumers choose to buy. At the current time it is difficult to predict the impact of the GMO issue on consumer food choices in the UK.
