About The Non-GMO Project
The Non-GMO Project is a mission-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to building and protecting a non-GMO food supply. We do this through consumer education and outreach programs; marketing support provided to Non-GMO Project Verified brands; and training resources and merchandising materials provided to retailers. Non-GMO Project Verified remains the market leader for GMO avoidance and one of the fastest growing labels in the retail sector. We offer North America’s most trusted third-party verification for non-GMO products. The Non-GMO Project Standard is a consensus-based document crafted with the insight from dozens of industry experts, reflecting a dynamic range of perspectives. In a world of shifting technologies, the Standard remains current and collaborative through ongoing public comment periods. Because of this collaboration with engaged stakeholder groups, Non-GMO Project Verified is a meaningful and achievable way for suppliers, brands and retailers to show their commitment to providing consumers transparent choice in the marketplace. \*\*Mission\*\* The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization offering rigorous product verification and trustworthy education that empowers people to care for themselves, the planet, and future generations. \*\*WE BELIEVE\*\* - Everyone has a right to know what is in their food and deserves access to non-GMO choices. - By voting with our dollars every time we shop, collectively we have the power to change the way our food is grown and made. - Preserving and building the non-GMO supply chain is a critical step of transitioning toward a non-GMO food supply for future generations. -The integrity of our diverse genetic inheritance is essential to environmental health and ecological harmony. - By encouraging a non-GMO seed supply, we are supporting the restoration of traditional seed breeding and the right of farmers to save and plant their own seeds and grow varieties of their choice. - A verified non-GMO system supports organic agriculture by reducing contamination pressure and protecting the supply of non-GMO seed. - Everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified organisms.
