Happy Non-GMO Month!
While consumers fight for their right to know at the polls, the Non-GMO Project is providing shoppers with an immediate solution to the presence of unlabeled GMOs. As the only third party non-GMO verification in North America, the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is quickly gaining popularity. It’s now the fastest growing label claim in the natural products industry with more than 6,000 Non-GMO Project Verified products representing close to $3 billion in annual sales.
GMO labeling is mandatory in 49 other countries around the world, including Australia, Russia, China, and all of Europe, but no such requirements exist in the U.S. In this regulatory void, it’s more important than ever for individuals to take action in support of a safe, healthy food supply. Non-GMO Month is a perfect time to celebrate your right to choose non-GMO. For inspiration, check out our list of 8 Ways to Celebrate Non-GMO Month this October.
