GMO vs. Non-GMO

Everyone has a right to know what is in their food.

What are GMO’s?

GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

GMOs Have Not Been Proven Safe

Contrary to industry claims, GMOs have never been properly tested for human safety. We believe people have a right to know that the food they are eating and feeding their loved ones is safe.

Why Non-GMO?

  • People have the right to know what’s in their food.
  • GMOs have never been properly tested for human safety.
  • GMOs raise health concerns, harm the environment.
  • GMOs are engineered with bacteria and viruses to produce insecticides and survive heavy doses of herbicides. That is not healthy for us or the environment.
  • 87% of consumers globally think Non-GMO is healthier.
  • In more than 60 countries around the world, including all of the countries in the European Union, there are restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
