GMOs

Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are plants or animals that have been genetically altered to exhibit a desired trait. Plants that are genetically altered are usually modified with FOREIGN DNA to resist herbicide or to become a pesticide.

The most common GMOs are corn, soy, cotton, canola, sugar beets, alfalfa, some crookneck squash and zucchini, and Hawaiian papaya. Many of the ingredients we find in our food are derived from one or more of these crops. This is why most processed foods contain GMOs. GM salmon is also being developed and could hit the market soon.

GMOs have never been human safety tested and are not required by law to be labeled. Because they are not labeled consumers do not know when they are consuming GMOs eating. Although 61 countries around the world have banned GMO foods or have labeling laws.

There is a growing demand for GMO free foods from consumers. Consumers have repeatedly submitted requests to the FDA for mandatory GMO labels laws but these requests have been ignored. And several states have tried to pass their own labeling laws. Some counties in the U.S. have even banned the growth of GMO foods. And there has been over a 200% increase in the sales of foods that are Non-GMO Project Verified in just one year.

Don’t you want a piece of the non-GMO pie?

We would like to work with you to meet this growing consumer demand and to provide GMO free foods for consumers who do not want to consume them.
