Switzerland's leading food retailers have introduced a new code of conduct that will oblige their food and packaging suppliers to provide detailed information about nanotechnology products.
The code, drawn up by the IG DHS, the Swiss retailers association, is in part a response to the fierce criticism drawn by some store operators after they stocked genetically modified (GM) food.
"Companies such as Migros and Coop had a very negative experience over GM products," said Christopher Meili, CEO of The Innovation Society, a Swiss company specialising in nanotechnology risk management.
"They wanted to avoid that bad consumer publicity when it came to nanotechnology," Meili told FoodProductionDaily.com.
His company worked with the retailers to assess the potential risks from nanotech products in food and packaging and to draw up the code of conduct.
According to Meili, Swiss consumers do not necessarily have a negative attitude towards nanotech.
