Nanotechnology in the UK Food Industry Attacked

January 12, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ The UK Parliament has strongly criticized food companies for their lack of transparency when it comes to nanotechnology research and food.

The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee chastised the food industry for being secretive with its lack of transparency on nanomaterial research being conducted to determine the technology’s safe use in food products. It’s a criticism that took the food industry and its lobbying group, The Food and Drink Federation, by surprise.
