October is Non-GMO month which celebrates the consumer’s right to choose non-GMO products as well as raise awareness about the GMO issue and supports the brands and retailers that have made a non-GMO commitment. Here at Mamma Chia, we are proud to say that all of our products are Non GMO Project Verified and Certified Organic! ✅
Make sure to look for the Butterfly 🦋when shopping and remember, organic is ALWAYS non-GMO!
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.
