National Wine Agency: Danger of presence of GMOs in the Georgian wine is minimal

04.03.2014 (Hvino News). The issue of verification of Georgian wine for  presence of genetically modified organisms was commented by director of the National Wine Agency Levan Davitashvili. According to him, probability that wine with the content of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) exists in the world is quite high, but with regard to Georgia it is minimal, because the Georgian manufacturers use high grade yeast.

"Wine is considered genetically modified when genetically modified yeast is used during the production.In Georgia, a lab which checks products for the presence of such substances, has been recently opened and accordingly, Georgian wine can also be checked if necessary. I am far from thinking that in Georgia such wine is produced, but if the issue arises, it will be easy to check it out,"- said Mr. Davitashvili.

This issue became urgent after a Russian media reported that 65% of Moldovan wine contained GMOs.
