As of June 14, 2010, new regulations regarding the labeling of geneticallymodified organisms (GMOs) in food have been enacted in Malaysia through
Malaysian signed the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB) on May 24, 2000
under Section 61, which states that“Factors Influencing Malaysian Public Attitudes to Agro-Biotechnology”, (LatifahAmin, 2010, )
objectiveof implementing mandatoryGMO labeling is to provide consumerswith additional information and increase consumer choice.
Malaysian consumers maybe know about theexistence of the GMF but do not have enoughunderstanding of the underlying concept,which might be influencing their purchasingintentions regarding GMF.
As Malaysian consumers are found to showgreater concerns for the risks attached with the GM food, it is suggested that more efforts should be laid by the policymakers from government and industry to increase knowledge about benefits of GM food.
This increased knowledge is a key to help lower the consumers‟ perception level of risks and lever the perceived quality in turn (Klerck & Sweeney, 2007; Linh, 2009).
