Taking samples of food or feed for testing them for GMOs
Taking samples is easy for food products which consumers can find in grocery stores. However, testing a whole shipload of grains, for example, for its average content of GMOs is a difficult task. Little research has been conducted on the issues of where such a load should be sampled, how large a sample should be and how many samples may be required. These questions, and the question of where the best stages along the production chain for sampling may be, will be addressed by Co-Extra.
