GVO-explication:
During the production of our products we do not use genetical proceedings or genetically modified ingredients.
The product is according to the order (EC) 1829/2003 and 1830/2003 (instructions to identification [...] genetically modified food from the European Parliament and the Council of 22.09.2003) and has no obligation for labelling.

genetially modified organisms
Explanation:
GVO stands for the German term Genetisch Veräderte Organismen - Genetically Modified Organisms. (Source: Acronym Finder).
"Explication" is wrong, should be "explanation",
(Explication is defined on Google as: "the process of analysing and developing an idea or principle in detail.
the process of analysing a literary work in order to reveal its meaning.")

Yes, as Tony says, "Veräderte" should read "Veränderte".
