Syngenta GMO free declaration
To whom it may concern,
All vegetable varieties presently marketed by Syngenta Seeds in EAME have been created using traditional breeding methods without the use of genetic modification techniques leading to genetically modified organisms as defined in Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms.
The methods used in the development and maintenance of those varieties are aimed at achieving high purity standards and avoiding the presence of off-types, including genetically modified organisms.
Seed production has been carried out in accordance with existing legal requirements related to marketing of varieties and seed production rules including stipulated isolation distances. The risk of adventitious contamination in seed multiplication areas although unlikely cannot however be totally excluded.
