Seal assignment and forum of interest for food without genetic engineering

The German Association Food without Genetic Engineering (Verband Lebensmittel ohne Gentechnik e.V.) [VLOG] assigns the "Ohne GenTechnik" seal for food and the "VLOG geprüft" seal for animal feed. Businesses wishing to label their products with the seals must meet the legal requirements for "Ohne Gentechnik" production in order to do so. In addition, they must be certified according to the "Ohne Gentechnik" Production and Certification Standard of VLOG. Our member businesses include farmers, processors, marketers, food and feed producers, trading companies, laboratories and certification bodies, as well as associations.


We represent the interests of our members vis-à-vis authorities, politics, the media, civil society organisations and other economic stakeholders. The aim of the association's work is to promote the dissemination of the "Ohne Gentechnik" label and the associated consumer education. With this information, consumers can decide whether they want to support GMO-free agriculture by buying these foods.
