There are also 10 new authorisations for GMOs for food/feed use and seven renewals of existing authorisations.
These GMOs had gone through a "full authorisation procedure, including a favourable scientific assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)". The authorisation decisions do not cover cultivation.
Cut flower carnations line IFD-25958-3 and line IFD-26407-2 have been approved.
Suntory-owned Florigene wants to export carnations genetically modified for petal colour and herbicide tolerance.
Defra policy is to agree to planting of GM crops "if a robust risk assessment indicates that it is safe for people and the environment". It advocates thorough labelling and "supports farmers having access to developments in new technology and being able to choose whether or not to adopt them".
Defra added: "We recognise that GM technology could deliver benefits providing it is used safely and responsibly, in particular as one of a range of tools to address the longer term challenges of global food security, climate change, and the need for more sustainable agricultural production.
"Developing countries should have fair access to such technology and make their own informed decisions regarding its use.
"To encourage innovation, fair market access for safe products and economic growth, the government believes that regulation of this technology must be proportionate."
Defra would not comment further because of the election.
Molly Scott Cato Green Party MEP:
"Giving the go-ahead to these GMOs is an affront to democracy as a majority of EU member states were not in favour of them.
We also know that EU citizens continue to say no to GMO."
