October is Non-GMO Month!

October is Non-GMO month, which celebrates everyone’s right to choose whether or not to consume genetically modified foods. All of Mamma Chia’s products are Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Organic, which reflects our commitment to building a better, more transparent food system!

We believe that by choosing to go non-GMO, you’re supporting an agricultural system that respects Mamma Earth’s biodiversity and helps provide a safe, healthy food supply for future generations! And remember, Certified Organic is always Non-GMO! ✅

In Celebration of Non-GMO Month: Together We Can Create the Future We Want

Harvest season is upon us! This Non-GMO Month, we celebrate kindness and community; coming together during times of hardship; and the necessity of caring for each other and our planet. This caring revolves around one of our most basic needs: food.

Communities grow around food. From our small local farms to folks delivering groceries to their neighbors in times of need, some of our strongest bonds are based on food. Many of us learned this year just how much we rely on our favorite brands at the grocery store. From producers to retail staff, everyone along the supply chain worked harder than ever to keep our community safe, healthy and nourished in an uncertain landscape.

GMOs were first introduced in the 1990s with a shocking lack of public awareness: The news that novel organisms were entering the food supply simply wasn’t shared with the people who would end up eating them. Thankfully, not everyone was in the dark: Natural foods stores, in particular, began looking for ways to answer customer concerns about GMOs. Two retailers led the charge: The Natural Grocery Company in Berkeley, California, and The Big Carrot Natural Food Market in Toronto, Ontario. Through their combined efforts to create a shared definition of GMOs and a labeling mechanism for non-GMO foods, the Non-GMO Project was born.

Today, new GMOs — created with emerging technologies — continue to enter the food supply. The transparency of the Non-GMO Project Verified label means that trust and simplicity can still guide the choices we make at the store. While the people at the Non-GMO Project continue their work to protect our genetic inheritance — tracking where our food comes from and how it is produced  — we are committed to bringing non-GMO choices to our customers. We wish a happy and healthy Non-GMO Month to you and your family.
