With regard to the coming into the market of genetic modified soya- and maize variety and from that gathered animal feed, the vegetable biotechnology became a very important common area for special attention of the Product Board of Margarine, Fatts and Oil, the Product Board Grain, Seed and Legumes and The Product Board Animal Feed.

In 1998 these three mentioned product boards have established the project group biotechnology.
