Non-genetically modified corn imported into the US  

  The Austrian wine producer & farmer Willi Weber is not only known for his delicious wines but also produces organic, non-genetically modified corn. Hs corn fields are inspected on a regular basis to ensure that US organic standards are met. The corn is converted to organic starch by Agrana Stärke GmbH in Austria and imported into the US for the use in baby formula.

Austria is one of the few European countries where the cultivation of GMO corn is prohibited. Austria’s tradition of organic cultivation dates back to 1925 and Austria now has the largest acreage under organic cultivation in Europe.
