Sunwin Stevia International, Inc., one of the top global suppliers of high quality stevia extracts including Rebaudioside A 98 and Rebaudioside A99, announced today that Qufu Shengren Pharmaceutical Company, Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sunwin Stevia, has obtained certification of non-genetically modified organisms ("Non-GMOs") (Certificate No: 52462).
The Non-GMO Project's Product Verification Program ("PVP") is a process-based and product-based program designed to assess compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. The core requirements are traceability, segregation, and testing of high-risk ingredients at critical control points. The Non-GMO Project's PVP is North America's only independent, standard-based tool for ensuring that a product comes from best practices to avoid GMOs.
Non-GMO PVP is the fastest growing label in the natural products industry, representing $11 billion in annual sales and more than 27,000 verified products. With consumers today, the Non-GMO Project seal is the most trusted sign that a product comes from best practices for GMO avoidance.
Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO of Sunwin Stevia stated, "Verified by the Non-GMO Project means Sunwin Stevia's products are free of any GMOs and can legally use the non-GMO label to be sold in any green market. Management is very pleased that its stevia products have achieved non-GMO verified status and passed the on-site inspection and document-based evaluation. Management believes that the potential to penetrate a multiple billion green market is substantial, as more and more people realize that natural products are better for our bodies, better for our communities, and better for the planet."
