Do You Know What’s in Your Shopping Cart? (Infographic)
Health and Nutrition Non-GMO Project Verified continues to be one of the fastest growing labels in the food industry, due to consumer demand for transparency about what’s in their food.
With a single pen stroke the new Federal GMO Disclosure Law undid years of heroic efforts for meaningful GMO labeling by millions of concerned citizens across the United States. This new law as written obscures critical ingredient information and exempts many GMO-containing products from disclosure. Our work is now more important than ever.
Every person, regardless of where they live or how much money they make, deserves to easily identify and afford non-GMO choices. By creating a system by which food companies could meet consumer demand for non-GMO choices, we are preserving a safe, healthy food supply for future generations. Since the launch of the Non-GMO Project Verified label in 2010, nearly 40,000 products have been verified to the rigorous standards, including ongoing testing, required by our non-profit organization.
Every day, more people seek out the Non-GMO Project seal, and as companies of all types and sizes do the hard work to earn it, we are moving toward the future where everyone has a right to know what’s in their food and has access to non-GMO products. Your choices are powerful, your voice in the marketplace is loud, and you are having a significant impact.
