What is a GMO?
Genetically modified organisms are any living organism whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory using genetic engineering.
Since its origins, the Non-GMO Project has been a collaboration between stakeholders from the entire food supply chain, along with a network of technical and expert advisers from a broad and diverse range of backgrounds and sectors. We all have to work together to provide consumers an informed choice about GMO consumption and to preserve and build our non-GMO food supply!
The verification process includes segregation and traceability measures, ongoing testing for major GMO risk ingredients, and prohibits emerging genetic engineering technologies.
The Checkmark ✅
The checkmark leaf symbolizes the approval process of the non-GMO crops used in verified products.
The Butterfly ????
The butterfly symbolizes the interconnectedness of our food choices and the world’s ecosystem. The monarch’s survival has also been directly threatened by GMOs and chemical agriculture.
