A high-ranking official from Great Britain says Iowa and England have a lot of untapped trade opportunities, but he says Americans are just starting to have the same reservations about genetically-modified food that the Brits have had for years. M.T. Murray, Her Majesty’s Deputy Consul-General, is based in Chicago and visited Iowa’s Governor this week.Many Europeans refuse to buy American food that’s genetically-modified. Murray says the British have reason to be concerned about food safety with the past incidents such as mad cow disease.Murray often chooses organic foods when he’s shopping here. Murray hopes to return to Iowa in September for a two-day meeting with Iowa economic development officials to explore new trade ties with the state.Murray says the U-S and U-K are free-trading nations, so the possibilities are limitless.
