We are pleased to announce an upcoming UNPA-produced seminar: The Non-GMO Future: How to Source, Test, Label and Market Food and Supplement Ingredients.
The non-GMO food and supplement category is the fastest growing sector in the entire natural products industry. Consumer demand for non-GMO foods and dietary supplements has caused a scramble within our industry to understand supply chain requirements, labeling issues, testing for GMOs and perhaps, most significantly, the likelihood of state legislation mandating labeling distinctions between GMO and non-GMO products.
As you recall, California's Prop 37 came ever so close to doing this. We believe that this fall Washington State may be the first one to go over the top successfully with non-GMO legislation.
The Non-GMO Project Verified logo is the fastest growing brand in our industry. Why and how?
Whole Foods Market has announced a GMO transparency initiative to be fully implemented by 2018. This has been described as a game changer, as other retailers, big and small, are now working to do the same thing. In short, it is essential to understand:
- How to become a non-GMO compliant company
- The competitive marketplace that is developing
- The regulatory and political issues involved
UNPA has assembled a world-class faculty to provide the critical information and guidance you will need to know.
